    Has anyone else tried using the trial multicast service from the BBC? http://bbc.co.uk/multicast/

    You need to be connected via a particpating ISP, and your router needs to support IGMP proxy.

    I enabled IGMP proxy on the WAG54GV2 and it seems to work, but sometimes stalls while filling the buffer, and the router stops working afer about 10 to 20 minutes of multicast. (it looks like it is saturating the ADSL link with useless packets), and only starts working sensibly after reboot.

    Has anyone used multicast without lockup? I have tried sw versions EU v1.01.27 and UK v1.01.22.
