    • Mesh Radio: Select either 5 & 6 GHz or 2.5 GHz.
    Mesh networking is enabled.

When Directed Multicast is enabled, the AP inspects multicast traffic and monitors client IGMP/MLD subscriptions to determine packet handling. For multicast data subscribed to by the AP’s wireless clients, the AP will convert packets to unicast. When no client is subscribed, the AP will drop the packets. Some well-known traffic types (Bonjour, uPnP, etc) will bypass this logic altogether, and multicast-to-unicast conversion will be determined by the “Directed Threshold” in the WLAN advanced settings.

  1. Enable the following Multicast Traffic from:
    • Wired Client: Enables traffic from wired clients.
    • Wireless Client: Enables traffic from wireless clients.
    • Network: Enables traffic from networks.
