Hi Jim and Chris,
I can use Chromecast at home but not in this RV park. I have roughly 5 Mbps download speed here and Chromecast sputters. What’s the minimum needed to effectively use Chromecast? My neighbor doesn’t have any trouble with his amazon stick and sling. I have also tried the Screenbeam mini with no success. Thanks a bunch.
2 Mbps should be adequate to stream Chromecast. Something else may be eating bandwidth or interfering locally.
Are you using the RV park’s WiFi directly, or a local network connected to the Park?
I have a local network inside the RV that bridges the WiFi from the park.
Chromecast seems to want a healthy signal as much as high speed.
