I paid $100 for this baby yesterday in hopes to get wifi calling to work at my house (I had to pay that because i have a cell-fi in the house as well).
I run Windows Media Center for my TV/DVR and it's awesome. But the computer now loses tuners often, it's very frustrating. I know that it has to have multicasting enabled to ensure windows tracks the tuners so I went to the router settings > LAN > IPTV and selected enable on Enable multicast routing (IGMP Proxy) as well as Enable efficient multicast forwarding (IGMP Snooping).
Well, it turns out that it doesn't enable. it just goes back to disabled. I tried one at a time and nothing. I reset the router.. to find that it didn't work, either. I haven't had luck googling the issue aside from dumping the t-mobile firmware and going to official ASUS firmware on the router itself. I found in another forum that UPNP doesn't work well with NAT Acceleration, so I disabled that.. still nada.
I'm very frustrated that this sweet router that works okay for wifi calling will not support my hdhomerun prime tv tuner. I figured I'd ask here before taking it back. ..
Anyone have any ideas? I just need Multicasting to work!!
No luck. I had to go through the giant pain to er.. "fix" the router. It works with the standard ASUS firmware.
I would caution anyone installing the standard ASUS firmware (or any other non-T-Mobile firmware) on their router unless they bought it outright.
If you got the router for the $25 deposit [or $0 deposit in some cases], you're BORROWING the router from T-Mobile and if you don't restore the router to it's original firmware, T-Mobile will charge you when you return it at some point in the future.
Also, the T-Mobile firmware has enhancements for WiFi Calling. By installing a different firmware, you're clearing these enhancements, making it a "regular router". At that point, you pretty much have no difference than your previous router [except the wireless radio may be upgraded].
I'm having the same problem and was hoping there's a fix that doesn't involve me installing the original Asus firmware.
Is there any "official" answer to this question?
ryanshawley, did enabling IGMP Proxy fixes the HDHR problem?
Unfortunately, I found no other work around and am now on official Asus Firmware where i could enable multicasting. Reflashing the bootloader then asus firmware was a pain, but at least my TV works again
I had to enable multicast routing and forwarding under IPTV for it to work. and yeah, it works without an issue. Good Luck!
