If that's a typical home network, the 2 different radios and the ethernet are all one collision domain, so yeah, Chromecast and similar devices will work just fine. If you have separate network segments (think separate IP subnets) then you have issues and need to do gatewaying and other assorted hacks.

No, Apple is a hardware company that develops software to ensure hardware brand loyalty. The main reason they sell hardware is because that's the only way they could become a $100 billion company.

Name some Apple hardware that works with third-party software. Now name some Apple software that works with third-party hardware.

I don't dispute that the hardware isn't so special, and that the software inside is what makes it better. But don't jump to the conclusion that they are thus a software company. Be amazed at how they can use custom software to drive sales of expensive, profitable hardware.

>Name some Apple hardware that works with third-party software.

Macintoshes. iPhones. iPads.

>Now name some Apple software that works with third-party hardware.

MacOS. iPhoto. iMovie. Apature. Final Cut Pro. Probably some others...
