This tutorial will show you how to connect your Chromecast to the ufdevice wireless network. Please note your Chromecast must be registered with us before it can connect to the Internet. You can register your Chromecast at our device registration page.

Step 1

Make sure your Chromecast is connected to your TV and ready to be configured.

You will have to download the Google Home app in order to set up your Chromecast. This app is available in both Android and iOS. This tutorial shows screenshots for the Android version, but the iOS version is roughly the same.

Open Google Home once you have downloaded the app.


Step 2

Within the Google Home app, tap on the icon on the top right corner.


Step 3

You should see your Chromecast in the list of devices waiting to be configured. The name displayed in the app should match the one that is being displayed in your TV. Tap on SET UP.


Step 4

Your phone will attempt to find your Chromecast using nearby Wi-Fi signals. Once it is found, tap on CONTINUE.


Step 5

Then, your phone will join a temporary hotspot set up by your Chromecast.

Please wait while your Chromecast connects to the hotspot.


Step 6

Your Chromecast will display a code in your TV and on your phone. If they match, tap on I SEE THE CODE.


Step 7

Type in a name for your Chromecast. It’s up to you to decide if you want to send Google information on device usage data or crash reports.

We recommend to Enable Guest mode so you can cast to your Chromecast easier.


Step 8

Select ufdevice from the list of networks and type in gogators for the password.

If you need to register your Chromecast, its MAC address will be displayed at the bottom of the screen.

Tap on CONTINUE. After this, your Chromecast should be configured and ready to go.
