This is the problem I've been having for a couple of months. I no longer can get it to work through my router as it just says it can't connect. I have to do a hard reset every time now, try to hook into my wifi, then I have to cast directly to the Chromecast, which completely sucks because I now can't stream from the internet anymore. I have to download what I want to watch, then play it through videostream extension on Chrome, and cast to my chromecast. Which ones of the other options should I get to replace my Chromecast? Amazon Firestick anygood?
