Chromecast Router setup

Has anyone had any success with this setup to help me avoid a call to telus tech support? Thanks. Chromecast Router setup - per Google (https://support.google.com/chromecast/thread/355932?hl=en), the following settings are recommended (see below). Once inside my Router admin page, I can find IGMP but not Multicast (maybe part of IGMP settings?) or AP/Client isolation settings. Also, not sure if current IGMP settings are correct (see mine below)?  I am on the T3200M Modem but the only thread in the telus Neighborhood is locked and blocked! https://forum.telus.com/t5/Internet-TV-Home-Phone/Chromecast-not-working-with-T3200M/td-p/76554

Hi everyone!

 

We often hear that users have issues with their router settings when they first set up Chromecast. Here’s what you need to Set Up Chromecast:

  • If you're using Chromecast 1st gen, use the required 2.4 GHz WiFi band, not 5 GHz.
  • Make sure your router is within 10-15 feet of your Chromecast.
  • Enable: Multicast and Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP)
  • Disable: AP/client isolation, virtual private networks (VPNs), proxy servers, IGMP Proxy
  • Please note, each router and its settings are a bit different. Contact your router manufacturer for details.
  • If you’re using a BT Hub, turn off the Smart Setup feature in the router settings and reset the Chromecast. Check out Switching Smart Setup on and off on the BT Home Hub 4 or Hub 5 for more details.

You only need to mess with the router setting if you are having problems setting up your Chromecast. You haven't given any details about what problems you are encountering.
