Chromecasting to a projector


Chromecast doesn’t support captive portal networks. Just wondering if anybody has found a way to get one working in their school. I have a teacher wanting to use one to cast to his projector, cool idea. We use Aerohive APs.


The best way to allow Chromecasts on a network with a captive portal enabled is to create a MAC address object list and specify that list as a captive portal exception.

You can read up on the documentation around this functionality via the links below:



Hi Chris,
I was hoping that would be the way to go. I’ve asked the teacher for the MAC address for his device so we’ll see how it pans out.
