Chromecast is on a different network?? google wifi mesh

Community Member

 So i have google wifi setup with mesh.   3 pods, the main one hardwired into my router.

router is set to ippassthrough.

everything is added to google home.  my problem is i cannot connect to some of the chromecasts i have added.

if i cast say on youtube, it finds none of them or sometimes all of them.

if i try to connect to them in the home app. it tries then tells me im on a different network.

how do i overcome this issue?  i cannot control which wifi spot my phone connects too. nor do i know which wifi spot the chromecasts connect to when i set them up.  shouldnt the mesh overcome this on its own?

please advise, this is driving me crazy.

i did figure it out.

my router has ip-passthrough mode and decides on its own to revert to a normal router.

i tried keeping the same SSID which would then start broadcasting from said router.

i have since fixed the problem by changing the SSID on google wifi.

ty for responding!
