Fix 1: Factory Data Reset

The simplest and easiest way is to completely reset your Chromecast to factory settings. This will not delete any of your application data. All that means is that your Chromecast number will change (which will not make any difference to you or your devices) and you will have to start the setup process again. Press and hold the button on the back of your Chromecast key for at least 25 seconds. Once your TV screen goes blank, you can let it go and wait for it to clear its memory. It is also a good idea to try another device on your second installation attempt. For example, if you tried the setup the first time using the Chromecast app on your phone, download it to your roommate’s app and try using it the second time.

Fix 2: Reset Your Modem/Router

Turn off your modem and router (both are often part of the same device) and disconnect from the power supply. Wait about 10 seconds and reconnect the power before turning them on again (first modem, second router, if you have separate units). Wait about 30 seconds to 1 minute before trying to reconnect your Chromecast.

Fix 3: Use the Extender

Your Chromecast comes with a short HDMI extension cable. This is a rigid cable, a few centimeters long, that will prevent your Chromecast from coming out of the back of the TV. The purpose of this cable is to give your device a little more time to detect WiFi networks. TVs are basically giant shields through which signals pass very hard. Your Chromecast needs all the help you can. Even if it is not the problem, it is a good idea to use without delay, it will improve the speed of streaming.

Fix 4: Move Your Router

Similarly, if your router is in an area away from home or is so inclined that it is difficult to reach your Chromecast, it may be time to move it.

You can also purchase a WiFi repeater or a separate WiFi router near the Chromecast.
