Just installed a MyNet N900 wireless router. For the most part, everything works great - PC’s, Laptops, Webcam, Kindle Fire, Kindle DX, Android Phones, etc.
I also have a WD LiveHub running the Skitter App for IPTV - Multicast Video. The LiveHub is running over Cat5 wiring through a WD Live Wire Ethernet over Power device. So far, so good.
Where I run into trouble is using a WD Live box connected wirelessly. The device connects, the Skitter App loads, logs in, pulls the guide data, but won’t stream the multicast video. I’m assuming that it is an issue with IGMP snooping/querying over the wireless link.
I’ve had similar issues with other manufacturer’s routers, with the lone exception of the Innoband 4000-R2. The only problem with that router was throughput - I was getting a maximum of 20MB over a 50mb pipe. Allowing multicast over the wireless link was simple - a checkbox that allowed/disallowed IGMP.
The WD MyNet is doing everything (plus getting throughputs of up to 58.8MB) EXCEPT allow multicast video over the wireless portion of the router.
My usual test is to use the VideoLAN VLC player on my laptop and open the stream directly with the UDP address. I’m getting similar results there. If I connect the laptop with a cat5 cable, the VLC player runs the streams fine, if I connect wirelessly, the streams are choppy at best with distorted audio and pixelated video.
