Hi Peter, not sure what you are trying to do here but the ChromeCast dongle needs to plug into an HDMI port on your TV. It has a microUSB port only for power.

On some routers, there are USB ports for 3G dongles for wireless broadband, or media storage for DLNA or media sharing on your local network.

If you are trying to get eg. Youtube through your router, check this compatibility list:
Google Cast Router Compatibility

Hope this helps.

Unable to browse to cisco access point


'192.168.0.116' is the wrong range for the router. The Cisco manager allocates the ranges the router will use.
See this page on the setup.

Does the net gear 98 work with chrome cast


If this is a wireless router, your chrome cast device should pick up the signal if within reach. Make sure there is power to the chrome cast. Be sure the router is emitting Wi-Fi signal (test with a tablet or smart phone to make sure). Power cycle both devices (turn off-unplug-wait five minutes-reconnect and switch on) then attempt connection once again.

I have installed a bridge on my network, but when I try to configure Viera Cast I keep getting the message "invalid DNS address, check your settings"


where is the solution??? The sideline said there was one!! I have the same problem and FixYa seems to be useless with this particular problem. Spent half a day fighting my TV setting, but no luck. Panasonic should specify what kind of devices can be used to connect their TV's to network: whether you can only use it with a wired connection going straight to your router, so you get DHCP/DNS resolved, or some other means. You definitely can't use wireless Access Point to get the Viera Cast to work. I tried bunch of modes and settings on my Access Point (Trendnet, both router and AP), but get the same error "DNS name not valid". What in the world!!! I get connection to my router, my DHCP is enabled, connection in Network Settings checks OK, but VIera Cast still gives me that DNS error. What gives??? Anyone smart enough around here to figure this one out? I tried both automatic and manual network detection, with the same results, even tried connecting another router to AP, which got connection right away, and thought I could full Viera Cast that way. No luck! What a useless option in a TV, when it doesn't work! FAQ on Panasonic's site are not helpful with this issue, either. No straight answer on the Net, either. HELP SOMEBODY!

How do i configure my Belkin router to work with Sky broadband?


I'm not into hacking what I cannot find on ISP's sites

From what I can gather from the Sky Broadband site reading the manual installation procedures -- the process is pretty much automatic when it comes to installing their equipment leaving no clues as to how they configure it. What is the model if the Belkin router? Options probably exist to attach your device to theirs either as a router (establishing a second network behind theirs) or an access point joining as a member of their network - meaning there would would be two wireless networks in either case in the house (as there are no indications I have found on the site that the provided the sky router can be configured in any way such as turning off wireless). At least according to the documentation the sky router's wireless is running WPA-PSK security / encryption which is good -- and the documentation for attaching non-sky wireless adapters appears to be documented here.

Trying to instal wireless router


Hi Jwsgrl,

Did you buy the router new or used?

if used it might still have the old user settings on it that sometimes requires MAC addy's to be registered on the wireless access point site (192.168.1.1). If this is the case then hit the restart button while the router is on to default all settings.

the default login and pw for linksys is:
User Name: admin
Password: admin

You probably already have it set up since you followed the instructions but it never hurts to mention:
1. Make sure that your modems Ethernet line is connected to your wireless router Ethernet port, then using the 1 of 4 open jacks on the router connect #1 to your computers Ethernet Pprt.

let me know how i can assist you further.

-Daniel.
