Setting up IGMP Proxying causes wifi issues
I have been experiencing a really strange problem. When i activate IGMP Proxying for my IPTV service it causes my wifi to be extremely spotty. Here is the documentation regarding IGMP Proxying that i have reviewed: http://pfsensesetup.com/igmp-proxy-configuration-in-pfsense/
If anyone can give any insight to this that would be awesome.
EDIT: i believe it has something to do with the way pfsense handles multicast traffic, but i am not sure what to do about it.
When you start flooding WiFi with multicasts, it will obviously go the shitty side up… Cannot see how is this a good idea at all. Could be a bit better with IGMP snooping, however still bad idea. BTW, nothing special wrt pfS. See e.g. http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/udp_multicast
