A bug in the software used by Google Cast devices such as Chromecast and Home can slow down or crash WiFi networks. The problem — initially believed to be isolated to a particular router model made by TP-Link — appears to affect models made by other manufacturers, including Asus, Linksys, Netgear and Synology. Complaints on a Google user forum brought the problem to light earlier this week. “Initial setup was fine, everything was working …, but then my WiFi network went down,” wrote forum user Alastair Hadden.
