Google Chromecast and Wave 2 Router Compatibility?
Recently upgraded service (old Time Warner customer) and received a new cable modem (TM1602A MTA) and WiFi Router (RAC2V1A). Internet connectivity is ok and I have been able to reestablish connectivity for all my connected devices (thermostat, vacuum, security, laptops, phones) except for 1 - the Google Chromecast. Despite allowing me to go through the setup in the Google Home application, I am unable to cast to my TV from either an Iphone or Android. I called Google and they said it was an issue with the Wave 2 routers with model numbers RACV1A, RACV1K to RAC2V1A, RAC2V1K. Specifically, I was told that a default setting on the router is preventing my devices (phone and chromecast) from communicating with each other. A call to Spectrum customer support was fruitless as they were not aware of the issue/no notes on it in their database of known issues.
Anyone else experience this issue and solved it? Before I attempt to bring my equipment to a Spectrum store for a swap, which is what I was advised to do by Google, for a compatible router if that even exists, I want to see if there are any other options to resolve issue.
