How Google Chromecast Broadcasts

The Chromecast only broadcasts its SSID for setup. This essentially creates an adhoc network. If the device fails to connect to a wireless network it will automatically go back into its 'set me up' state and you will see that SSID available. A blinking white light means that the device is  not  connected to a wireless network. If it is a solid white light, it means that the device is connected to a wireless network and ready to accept 'casts'.


Please note: Chromecast does not work with eduroam.
