comment Chromecast UK will not connect with Windows 7 laptop
@MikeNaylor I cannot really turn off the Firewall in this laptop, since it's also my work laptop and I don't have admin access to turn the firewall off. I tried changing the network type to "work", and still no luck connecting. I also tried setting my Chromecast in a different wireless network to the one at home, and I was successful with my phone, but unsuccessful with my laptop.

@MikeNaylor any ideas where to switch things off with regards to firewall settings? Also, how to switch to 'work' network?

It seems changing to Channel 11 was necessary, but what really made the trick was to use my Android phone to set it up first time around. Now the problem is that my Windows 7 laptop will not connect to it.

I tried disabling wireless security, which is the only item in the list I can modify even with the "Advanced Settings" for the BTHub3: no difference, still unable to connect the Chromecast.
