I have one and it does not work. It will charge, but not detect the Ethernet adapter. I don't know the chipset inside the Chromecast adapter, but I know from experience that Asix-based USB adapters do work with the Shield over OTG.

I have bought these adapters two years ago for my Shield Portable. They also work on the Tablet K1. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B009YPYORM https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003VSTDF
