Model : TL-WR941HP

Hardware Version : Not Clear

Firmware Version : 2.0.0 Build 20171127 Rel. 62435

ISP :

I received this router 2 days ago and I'm already having problems with it. I noticed that even with Chromecast connected to my Wi-Fi network, it's not recognized in any supported apps (youtube, hbo go, netflix). It only works if I reboot the router, but if after that I unplug the Chromecast and turn it back on, the problem appears again. This did not happen to me when I used the TL-WR941ND. Do you know what could be wrong?

*The TP-Link Brazil Support Center said that this router is incompatible with the Multicast function, so it doesn't work with Chromecast. That's true?
*I've tried support with Google, but they could not identify the problem.
(I'm sorry if I wrote something wrong in english...)

[FONT=times new roman]go to DHCP client list to check whether Chromecast obtain IP address.

If there is, record the MAC address of Chromecast and go to wireless->wireless statistics to confirm.

If there isn't MAC address on DHCP list or wireless statistics, try to reconfigure Chromecast.

If your chromecast is incompatible contact and it is not recognized by any supported apps



Bitdefender Error 1020

This helps your router for multicast function. You can also check it whether it is showing IP using DHCP.

Problem solved!I was able to solve the problem in another way. I added the Chromecast IP and MAC address to a DHCP server address reservation list. After that, I linked the MAC address of Chromecast in the ARP list. Okay, now whenever I turn on the TV, the Cast icon already appears on the cell phone. I suggest you all do this if you have the same problem.Anyway, thanks for the help, as a result of your suggestion of consulting the list of DHCP clients I remembered and was able to successfully test this other method.

*** UNSOLVED!!!! The problem persists...

If you want to try, go to "advanced" > "security"> "IP and MAC binding", however probably this will not solve ... I'm already having the same problem again.


This router needs an urgent firmware update! If I'd known I'd have this problem, I'd never bought that crap.

Estou com o mesmo problema com o Chromecast. Adquiri esse roteador há cerca de 1 mes e estou lutando para manter o Chromecast visível na rede. Já tentei reserva de endereço no DHCP, vínculo de MAC e IP na tabela ARP , liberar portas que possam ser usadas pelo Chromecast, alterar a configuração Multicast, enfim, não sei mais o que fazer. E o problema não é só com o Chromecast, mas com dispositivos conectados que utilizam tecnologia de espelhamento. Minha tv Smart também some da rede ao ser desligada. Os dispositivos só retornam reiniciando o roteador.

No, when I added the chromecast to the ARP list I thought I'd have it fixed, but the next day I had the same problem. Apparently this is a flaw in the router software.
