Why can’t I connect my PC to Chrome-cast?

Why does Chromecast not connect with my desktop PC?  It’s a Gateway SX2802 running Windows 7 Home Premium connected to the internet via a  wired connection to a DSL broadband router. The error message is “your Wi-Fi is off” “Wi-Fi needs to be turned on for the Chromecast App to work.” The wi-fi is on and I’m able to connect with my tablets, laptop and phone. I hope you can help me now. Thanks.

    on your router check if you have option: Wireless Isolation, and disable.
    When enabled, devices connected over wireless can only access the Internet. They won't be able to access any other devices or log in to your router

    perhaps because new wifi name and password

    turn off the wifi on other device that you have and try again chromecast.
