Issue with Router "talking" to Modem

by abenedet / February 10, 2018 10:32 AM PST

I currently have my PC hard-wired to my modem. I also have a wireless router connected to my modem, but I prefer not to have the PC connected to the router. This may seem weird but for some reason, my wireless router runs better when the PC isn't hard-wired into it.

The issue with my setup is that I want to cast from Chrome on PC to my Chromecast. The Chromecast is connected to the wireless network but with my current setup, Chrome is not able to find the Chromecast.

How do I get the modem to "talk" to the wireless router so that I can cast from my PC?

I'm no expert on networking but quite comfortable messing around with advanced settings on a PC.

Thanks in advance for your help.
