How do I change my Chromecast Wi-Fi network?
We’ll assume, for the sake of the tutorial, that you are able to access the previous Wi-Fi network as well as the new one. If you’re unable to connect to the old one, you’ll need to do a factory reset.
NOTE: Chromecasts can only connect to 2.4G networks. Devices that can connect to 5GHz networks or Ethernet will be able to connect to Chromecast provided they are on the same router.
- Open the Chromecast app on your Android or iOS device
- Search and connect to the Chromecast
- Open the settings page
- Tap the Wi-Fi network
- Select the new network from the dropdown menu
- Enter network password
Note that you will find a message advising that your mobile device and Chromecast will not be on the same network. Simply connect your device to the proper network and you’ll be in business.
