I have Chromecast and it was working fine and I can send videos from my iPhone from YouTube and other applicable applications. Chomecast is not the only device I can cast videos on, my Samsung TV can cast as well.
Now the icon disappeared from YouTube and other apps and I am not able to see the icon for both (Chromecast and TV). I tried to reset Chromecast, but the setup can not go through. Chromcast support suggested that I have to change a router setting, for example, AP Isolation is to be Disabled.
Note that I have't change anything I mean router or phone or app settings.
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
For what it's worth, the Chromecast has also been fine for me after I bought a standalone wireless router. I realize this is a costly option for some folks, but I wanted to contribute another data point to the thread.
@SlavaJ, you can't push the firmware update yourself. That has to be done by Rogers thru the Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS) which your modem is connected to. Please see post #63, just above to request the trial version.
If you log into your modem, the Software Version (Firmware) indicated on the STATUS page is what the modem has loaded. That STATUS page comes up automatically when you log into the modem. When the update is completed, the Software Version will indicate V220.127.116.11
Please see message #63 on the previous page, which will link you to other pages for more info. After reading thru that info, the step by step instructions for contacting @CommunityHelps contained within message #63 will make sense.
@halyn, I don't have a Chromecast, but I've been running the trial version 18.104.22.168 on my CGNM-3552 since it was released, with no service dropouts. Others have indicated that the issues with Chromecast devices are resolved with version 22.214.171.124.
HOw do you roll back to version 16??? i was speaking with a rogers rep and she said you cannot do that??? she said even if someone was able to push back to 16....the new update would be pushed through...

Chromecast problem - CGN3AMR
My router won't maintain a connection with my Chromecast device. I installed the router today and my laptop was able to connect to the Chromecast device but within minutes of getting out of the internet my laptop couldn't find the Chromecast device.
@honeysway2, I'm assuming that you are referring to the modem, and not a third party router. If this is correct , have a look at message # 471 (top post) on the following page for the instruction on requesting the trial version, 126.96.36.199 which will resolve the Chromecast issue.
Just thought I'd post an update to how things are working for me:
So, to reiterate, I have _not_ upgraded my Rogers modem to any beta firmware, it is still running whatever version is considered stable and which has been propagated to all customers with this modem model. See my previous messages for exact modem name and firmware version, etc. Instead, my setup is to use a third-party router.
My primary use of the Chromecast is to cast from apps on a tablet. What I've found over the last month or so is that some apps (like MLB and Youtube) work without issues, and can always find the Chromecast and cast to it. Some other apps, such as Netflix and Shomi, regularly experience problems. I was able to solve some of the issues by making sure the Netflix and Shomi apps are up-to-date from the app store, but even up to today, Netflix sometimes can no longer cast until I do a full, hard reset of the Chromecast (hold button down for 10+ seconds) and set up the Chromecast with the Google Cast app all over again. But I've had to do that twice now, so if that pattern continues, it'll be pretty annoying.
I am beginning to suspect that these issues are not all Rogers' fault, and that all three players have to "dance" well together. And by the three dancers, I mean (1) the Rogers modem+firmware (or your third-party router and its firmware), (2) the Chromecast device and its firmware, and (3) the particular apps you are casting from.
All in all, this is rather a nuisance and headache, and I'm beginning to wonder if I should just shop around for a Chromecast competitor device.
@Gman1979, have a look at message # 471 (top post) on the following page for instructions on requesting the trial version, 188.8.131.52.
When you are sending the private message as indicated in that post, also log into your modem and copy the HFC MAC address and modem Serial number and paste that into the message. The HFC MAC Address and modem Serial Number can be found on the STATUS page that is displayed when you log into the modem. The Cable Modem MAC Address and S/N can also be found on the back of the modem.
Sorry to resurrect a dormant thread, but I thought some might be interested to know that I have been essentially problem-free since my last post in August (so that's more than 3 months now). My setup/solution was to use a standalone router. All devices and apps are working fine with my old-gen (first gen?) Chromecast.
