I recently added an Xfi Pod to my network which converted my home to a Mesh Network instead of having a seperate 2.4ghz and 5ghz network. Since making the change, I am no longer able to connect either my first generation or second generation Chromecast device to the network. I'm looking for any advice that may help me get them working. The model of my modem is: TG1682G. Thank you!

Do you have a single SSID since you installed the pods?
Did you check help? For example,
(I have the Chromecast Ultra and I use an ethernet connection)
Thanks for replying - I have googled everywhere to find an answer. The Xfi pods are such a new product there just isn't anything online from what I've seen. I've done other searches like "mesh network" which essentially is what Xfi does to your home network. Unfortunately I can't use a ethernet connection as the modem is downstairs and the device is upstairs and also does not support a wired connection. Any other thoughts?
I'd love to find an answer as I'm sure this would help other Comcasters with future issues like this.
If I can't, I may have to simply return the Xfi pod for now until this kind of issue can be sorted out as I'm not sure what else to try except alter the modems configuration somehow which would most likely disable the xfi pod.
For a wifi connection, the Chromecast has instructions that I was able to use before I replaced mine with an Ultra.
It shouldn't be any different with pods; they are just broadcasting a wifi signal with an SSID. Do you have any other wifi devices that you are using with the pods?
