Wifi Analyzer – helped me analyse why an original Chromecast failed to see a Buffalo WLAE-AG300N

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/01/06

Brilliant! Helped me to track down why an original 1st generation Chromecast didn’t want to connect to a Buffalo WLAE-AG300N.

The problem there is that the original Chromecast does only 2.4Ghz WiFi and the WLAE-AG300N favours 5Ghz WiFi over 2.4Ghz when set to auto.

The solution is in the last picture: basically force the WLAE-AG300N to use 11n/g/b only which limits it to 2.4Ghz (it cannot use both frequencies at the same time).

Yes, I know the Microwaves drawback, but as the original Chromecast only does 2.4Ghz. I’d rather get the Chromecast Ethernet adapter but Google refuses to ship these outside the USA.
