so I'm using a Vemont USB-C hub that provides 100W Power Delivery, used a 120W charger and the Chromecast still provided a g.co/cast/power screen. I have the charger plugged into my HUB's USB-C port, LAN connected and the hub goes into the Chromecast...any idea why it wouldn't work?
The only reason I wanted to go Ethernet is 4k streaming from my local NAS (through Plex). Any suggestions for it?

Yep, it was already setup before I tried switching. I initially thought the 67W charger I had at first was at fault, but after I got the same screen with the 120W one it must be something else...I even tried a different USB-C hub but with the same result.
I did see comments similar to this one:
I have one of these as well, and so far it works great. You need both power plugs (Chromecast and Hub) plugged in for it to work. The USB-C from the Chromecast power adapter goes into the DC In slot on the hub. There might be better solutions, but this is one I found on this sub and was talked up by lots of people.
I think they're referring to ones like this:
