Just got a new chromecast 3rd gen.
Connected the device to hdmi port on the tv, ac connection as well.
installed Google home on my android cell phone, and started to setup the device.
Google home detected the new device, configured, connected it to wifi, updated the sw, and ends the setup process.
After that I tried to connect and start using it, and on Google home app, i'd "click" on the device name newly configred, first a "Connecting..." message appear followed by a "Not Available". (Can't see device on this WI-FI network...).
I doublechecked my phone is connected to the wifi, and get back on google home and check on settings/rooms.../device/device settings/devicename/device Information/wi-fi/ and is the same as in my phone.
The led in the chromecast is white.
I'd restarted the wifi modem, inmediately in the TV shows chromecast trying to connect to wifi, eventually connects.
And then it begins...device not available on Google home.
I already reset factory 3 times, and also in one of them tried to configure it with an iphone...and the story is the same.
Can someone help me with this issue please?
Any help will be much appreciated.
Thanks for reaching out to the Chromecast Community and I'm sorry to hear that you're having an issue with your Chromecast. Let's sort this out.
A few questions: what's the LED status on your Chromecast (solid or blinking)? How far is your Chromecast from the Wi-Fi router? Are you using a dual band router?

Let me know how it goes.
