Google Chromecast Wi-Fi Interruption Issue Fix to Be Issued on Thursday

Google Chromecast Wi-Fi Interruption Issue Fix to Be Issued on Thursday

After weeks of reports from users losing WiFi connections due to Google devices with the "Cast" feature, the company has responded. "The specific image of the network will vary depending on the router", the company while describing the issue on the support page. Say a Chromecast or Google Home speaker, also a TV with Android TV in which the function is built-in. According to the engineer, that could exceed over 100,000 packets, an amount that "may eventually cause some of router's primary features to shut down - including wireless connectivity". The issue initially seemed to be relegated only to those who owned the Google Home Max speaker and TP-Link Archer C7 router.

If you've noticed that your Wi-Fi has gone a little amusing recently, and you're the owner of a Google smart speaker or Cast device, the two things may be connected. Some Android users are also facing the same issue. However, Google does mention on the support page that people with an Android phone and a Chromecast built-in device, including the Chromecast and Home, on the same Wi-Fi "may experience" the issue. However, this is not the case, if we believe the constructive information provided by the TP-Link team.

Google is already aware of the issue.

According to TP-Link's blog post on the WiFi issue, the problems began in October 2017.

"I tried a hard reset of the Max". You may also restart the router as a quick fix. The hardware info will get a significant update so as to make it easier to avoid network traffic and make sure the device works. You can also try disabling the Cast feature on your devices to help mitigate the issue.

The team has identified the issue and is actively releasing a fix, which will start rolling out via a Google Play services update this Thursday, January 18. This will either overload the router or the access point, which may shorten the internet connection or the Wi-Fi signal.
