My Chromecast used to work with my previous modem / router no problem. We switched to Vodafone wireless Home phone and Broadband and find that our new B315s-607 gets almost there with connecting the Chromecast, but then "fails". There's a lot of settings in the B315. I've enabled UPnP, but could not find to disable:  Access Point, / AP Isolation /Client Isolation / Guest Mode. I'd be guessing with other settings such as Firewall switches, MAC filters etc. etc. I've been through the Chromecast forum problem with setup, and I'm sure that there's a setting on the B315, or else its just not compatable. Be great to know either way. Giving up on it would actually be a relief, and I could go do something more productive. Does anyone know? Vodafone have been embarrassingly useless, and I got nice (but useless) replies from Huawei.

I had a problem with some IP phones that use IGMP for provisioning on those routers. Didn't bother trying to fix it, just configured the phones manually.

Assume it is either filtered or just broken.

No idea of that's how devices find Chromecast's on a network, but it would make sense why you are struggling.

cheers. Got it sorted by going through exactly the same connection routine but with a different laptop. Windows 8 OS: no go, never worked, but Win 7 (starter) OS: success. Dont want to know why.
