Hi Rddragonhart69,

If the hotel network is a 'captive portal' type network that requires a username and password to be entered on a login page then a Chromecast can not connect with this type of network. If it could it would probably be available for anyone else on the network to control.

Other users have reported using either a travel router or a shared connection from a mobile device or computer in this situation.

Cathal
