Chrome Cast - Telstra NBN connectivity issues

After frustrating issues getting chrome cast and my telstra NBN to talk to each other I have found a solution. First I tried to connect semi automatically by choosing the network and typing in the password manually. This meant chrome cast saved the info even though it couldn't connect to the inter web. Using the left arrow on the remote I asked it to choose another network. In the mean time I switched on the iPhones "Personal Hot Spot" and connected to that as my network. After everything was set up and running, I turned the iPhone hot spot off. In the mean time, chrome cast had downloaded an updater automatically (not sure if this had anything to do with things). Chrome cast then searched for a new network, found the Telstra NBN network and hasn't missed a beat since.  Hope this might help others as I had run all the fix it pages to no effect.
