  1. Hi! I would like to know if you can set up the anycast m2 plua in a wifi without internet connection. Also, what's the diffrence between this and the anycast m2?

      Hi Sany, Thank you for dropping by. Yes you can setup the anycast without internet connection, but you can only use the mirroring mode and not the streaming mode as it needs internet connection.

    Hi there my any-cast dongle M2 Plus doesn't show up on my WiFi at all so I cant select it to start with what should I do

    1. Marvin Gabriel

      Make sure that your anycast dongle is turning on, to verify that make sure you're on the main page of the anycast. Next thing to check is make sure the anycast wifi receiver is not being blocked so that it can be detected by your mobile phone/device. you can also try using other device to isolate the problem. I hope you can sort it out. Good Luck!

    2. Marvin Gabriel

      If you have a blue screen page then it's possible that you're on an old firmware. however, even that is the case you shouldn't have any problem searching for the wifi using your device. Can you try the anycast dongle on another TV? It's odd that you can't find the anycast dongle wifi ID on your device. Also, try changing modes and see if the wifi ID of the anycast dongle will pop up with either the miracast or airplay mode.

      That's when you need the anycast, if your TV doesn't have casting option you can use the anycast dongle to cast/mirror or stream contents from your device to your TV

    I have purchased Anycast M4 dongel. However, when I tried to connect it is not working.
    I have connected Anycast M4 Plus device to my TV using phone’s wi-fi. The Anycast device is detected in my Lenovo Android phone's wi-fi. I connected to it. Then going to the Cast feature on my Android phone, the device is also detected. However, when I click on it, it says "connecting", but then ends with "Casting screen to Anycast-______ has ended" a few seconds later. Need help. What's the problem with this? Thank you in advance for the help.

    Anycast Wifi is not getting in my Lenovo k6 phone meracast mode some times it shows ssid with authentication problem no connectivity.

  17. Unknown

    What to do when anycast doesn't show its SSID and password. I can't even connect it with its router since the SSID is not visible. I don't think if there's poor signal since I usually inserted it this place and this TV when its still in good condition. I also tried inserting it in other tv's in different places and status is still the same. SSID and password won't show up.

    Hi Marvin,
    I think I have the anycast m4. Mine when connected is goes to an home screen showing options
    1. iOS/Mac
    2. Android
    3. Google home
    4. Google Chrome
    5. DLNA Streaming Apps
    However it does no show any SSID, Password or IP address.
    There is a note:
    "Some questions, Please restart!
    Am not sure what to do here because.
    1. I am connected to an external power source
    2. My receiver is in a clear space.

    Hope you can help me.
    Kind regards
