Askey Router Chromecast Compatibility Woes - Time Warner Internet

This question is about "Askey Router Chromecast Compatibility Woes", with Time Warner Cable internet and apps. Hi Everyone,

I just switched to Spectrum Ultra Internet over the weekend, although the download speeds are great I’m running into significant issues with the provided Askey router (Spectrum Wave 2) when it comes to getting my chromecasts working correctly.

Basically, I can only cast for several minutes after the router is rebooted. After that period my phone doesn’t see any of the chromecasts anymore. I suspect is as to do with AP isolation, which is one setting I can’t find on the router configuration page. A quick google search shows I’m not alone in dealing with this issue.

Has anyone had success getting their Chromecast to work with the Askey Spectrum router?

I should mention I have the first gen Chromecast models, not sure if that makes a difference.

A thought I had was to use my old TP-LINK Archer C2 router which has wireless AC capabilities in conjunction with the Askey router. I tried disabling DHCP on the Askey in order to make it act like an access point since I’m impressed with its range, it’s a lot better than my TP-LINK router. But it doesn’t have an access point mode built into the configuration.

If anyone could share how to bridge an Askey router I would be forever grateful.
