Is Orbi RBR20 Compatible with Chromecast?

Is Orbi RBR20 Compatible with Chromecast?

Have tried to connect Google Chromecast to my RBR20 Orbi.  Failed.  Worked with Gooble Chromecast support over 2-day period.  Failed.  Researched Netgear Community knowledge base, and sent email to Netgear support.... Case#42184503 ... awaiting a response.  Note:  Using the Orbi and Google Home apps on android phone.   

Without getting into the minutiae of my circumstances, maybe I should ask if anyone successfully connected Chromecast to Orbi RBR20?  If they are not compatible, then it's time to quit.  Otherwise, if anyone has been successful, please advise with suggestions/recommendations.

Re: Is Orbi RBR20 Compatible with Chromecast?

What Firmware is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the ISP modem the NG router is connected too?

What do you mean by "Failed"? 


What is the size of your home? Sq Ft?
What is the distance between the router and satellite(s)? 30 feet is recommended in between RBR and RBS to begin with depending upon building materials when wirelessly connected. https://kb.netgear.com/000036466/How-far-should-I-place-my-Orbi-satellite-from-my-Orbi-router

What channels are you using? Auto? Try setting manual channel 1, 6 or 11 on 2.4Ghz and any unused channel on 5Ghz.
Any Wifi Neighbors near by? If so, how many?

Try enabling Beamforming and MIMO(MIMO may or maynot be needed) and WMM. Under Advanced Tab/Advanced Settings/Wireless Settings

Try disabling the following and see:
Armor, Circle, Daisy Chain, Fast Roaming, IPv6 and Set 20/40Mhz Coexistence to 40Mhz only. Save settings and reboot the router and satellite(s).
