Why is it telling me that my wifi is turned off?

I tried installing my chromecast and it is telling me that my wifi is turned off, which can not be true because it is always on, we have 2 laptops and the ipad which work off the wifi from the main desktop. I am trying to install the chrome cast on our desktop.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The WiFi has to be local to your desktop. It can't come from the router via Ethernet.

Interestingly enough, on my laptop, when cabled to the router, and with local WiFi disabled, the setup utility finds the network just fine.
