Block multicast from WAN to WLAN?

    I am using an IPTV service to watch/record TV on a computer connected behind a WRT54GL running Tomato. The multicast streaming works fine but since the multicast is like a broadcast on the LAN the UDP packets are sent out on all wired LAN ports and the WLAN.

    Is there a way to configure the bridge to not forward the multicast packets to the WLAN? Since the wired LAN is 100Mbit it handles the streaming just fine but it floods the WLAN. I suspect I need to use ebtables to configure the bridge but that command is not available in Tomato.

    I tried that with tcpdump but I just get "Segmentation fault" when I run it. What version of openwrt matches the kernel and libs used in Tomato 1.06?
