Trouble using Chromecast on 5268AC (2.4GHz vs 5GHz)
I have a 5268AC modem/router. I have a Chromecast 2 set up, and primarily use it from my phone (HTC One M8) to control it. My phone connects automatically to the 5GHz spectrum, and when it's there, it can't see or talk to my chromecast. When I force the phone into 2.4GHz mode, it works just fine, but obviously, if I can use 5GHz, I want to. I can't find a way to get my Chromecast to switch over to the 5GHz spectrum, and I can't find a way to get my phone to talk to the Chromecast FROM the 5GHz spectrum.
I tried factory resetting the chromecast, forcing my phone into 5GHz, and trying to re-set up the Chromecast that way, but even then, my phone can't find it.
Is there a solution to this? Some way to make devices speak to one another from the two spectrums, or to force the Chromecast to use the 5GHz?
