How to Cast to an Amazon FireStick

Mirror to Amazon Firestick ScreenAre you sick of reading books on a 13-inch laptop or a 6-inch phone? If so, you can mirror your phone or laptop screen to your TV to get a larger view while reducing strain on your eyes and neck. It’s practical to cast to an Amazon FireStick.

Casting lets you see material from your tablet, smartphone, or laptop on the TV. With a Windows 10 or 11 computer or an Android tablet, setup is simple. You might wish to cast from your iPhone, but it’s a little trickier on an iOS device.

We’ll demonstrate how to cast from an Android and iOS smartphone to Amazon Firestick and a Windows PC. Let’s begin the process without further delays.

Why you should confirm your Firestick Wi-Fi network 

Before you begin, ensure your smartphone, laptop, and casting device are on the same Wi-Fi network. Here’s how to confirm your firestick’s connection:

  1. Navigate to Settings from the home screen.
  2. Choose My Fire TV.
  3. Tap About.
  4. Scroll down to Network. Check that the name of your Wi-Fi network, or SSID, matches the one on your phone or laptop by checking it.

How to solve common problems with Windows 10 to Firestick mirroring

Glitches can occur with casting even without using cables and specialized software. Here are tips to resolve issues you may have when connecting your devices for casting.

Use the same Wi-Fi network.

Failure to connect your devices to the same network is a common problem with casting. Routers operate on different channels to prevent interference from other networks. The problem occurs when your devices are on the same network but with different bands. To enjoy a seamless casting, ensure your Firestick and PC are on the same network and frequency.

Restart your Firestick device

Sometimes your device may not detect your firestick even though they’re on the same network. In such cases, turning your Firestick OFF and ON again can help. After restarting, enable the mirroring feature and search it from your computer.

Check if your firestick has detected your Windows PC.

If you tried the above steps, but there’s no connection between your firestick and PC, there’s a software problem. Check if there are software updates available for your Firestick and Windows devices. If any, go ahead and update them. If the problem persists, update your drivers too.
