For some routers the term "isolation" mode is used to configure a wireless network that allows clients, that are connected, to access only the Internet but not other clients on the local network. This s similar to what the Guest Network feature on the Apple routers.

Tesserax - that's interesting. Can you tell me how to disable that feature AND is it even advisable to do so? I mean - what are the ramifications?

For the AirPorts, the Guest Network is disabled by default. You would enable it using the AirPort Utility, as follows:
- AirPort Utility > Select the AirPort > Edit > Wireless tab > Enable Guest Network
Unless you are planning on supporting guest wireless clients, this should remain disabled. When enabled, the overall available wireless bandwidth must be shared thus potentially impacting performance. A Guest Network does not require a user to know a password. This is similar to Wi-Fi networks provided in coffee shops and is known as a "open" network.

Although enabling Guest Network seemed logical it did not solve the issue and Chromecast still did not work on my Airport Express network. I returned it to the store.

Having similar problem. Using an older white MacBook with built in AirPort Extreme as my wifi router via sharing settings. I get this error:UPnP (Universal Plug and Play), also known as multicast, allows for the discovery of UPnP enabled devices on the same Wi-Fi network.
No idea how do this. I read that you can use the airport utility to make changes, but that utility doesn't allow changes. I also tried enabling file sharing and a few other settings. No luck. Any ideas, or will this just not work without a separate router.

Chromecast seems to support 2.4 ghz only. I switched network to only 2.4 ghz and it works as charm.

Turning off the Guest Wireless and running with 2.4Ghz only, helped get it working.
