IPTV box VIP5662W has to be wired to router. I have an old WRT400N with DD-WRT v24-sp2 (03/25/13) std build 21061, set it to client-bridge mode to connect to my router T3200M. connecting like this: VIP5662W ->wire connect->WRT400N ->Client-bridge mode wireless connect ->T3200M. already disable SPI firewall on the WRT400N, but still got the multicast issue, which the TV channel will show about 15 seconds then freeze. change to other TV channel and the same issue repeat.
anyone please share some light on how to make it work?
[quote="Per Yngve Berg"]Get a recent build. Multicast only works on builds from the last two years.
1) Untick the Filter Multicast on the Firewall
2) Multicast does not work over wifi, because it will only use the base speed of 6M. Use a wire between the routers.[/quote]
1)Filter Multicast has been untick and the Whole SPI firewall is disabled.
2)this IPTV box originally has the wifi adapter from the manufacture(you can tell from the w at the end of model) , but the isp vendor take it out to save cost. So Multicast should work on wifi. This STB has pvr, my other STB without PVR can wifi connect and work without problem.
