    Hello, i am having a problem with my IPTV lagging all the time I am outside UK so i don’t need to use a VPN, the problem is i need to enable Multicast and in this router version i cannot enable it on Ethernet mode, only on ATM and VDSL. My wireless connection requires Ethernet, even after setting up QOS my IPTV still lag and freeze on other connection it works, though i have no problem streaming Netflix and Youtube, So what do you think could fix my problem ?

    I believe you are correct, the DSL-N16 is a budget modem / router combo and so does not have the same features as say the DSL-AC68U etc.

    No work around (IPTV) as far as I am aware, I assume you have the option for IGMP Proxy , maybe try that but I think that will not work ?

    As you are using Ethernet mode, maybe an option to purchase RT type ASUS router (non modem) as this will work well especially for streaming and gaming

    Yes indeed it is a budget Modem, but my main interest in buying it was because it has a detailed Qos, most economy Modems / Wireless have automatic Qos this one have specific rules that can be setup. Ironically IGMP should be available but it is “locked” for the Ethernet Ports along with the Multicast. I guess i have to upgrade but i bought my Modem since 2 weeks only :/

    Hopefully you can return your DSL-N16 and swap it for something better suited ?

    Alas there is no third party option for Firmware, so again you are limited by the DSL-N16.

    If you do purchase new router, try to purchase one that is Broadcom chipset based

    Only a thought, multicasting is UDP only for IPv4, but in IPv6  included support for multicast TCP.

    If that works then you could tunnel 6to4 from your WAN connection so ISP works correctly ?

    I don’t think my ISP support IPv6 but for anyone having this problem i was able to fix it, here’s how since i wasn’t able to use multicast on Ethernet i switched to wifi since i have this connection only for xbox and no other wireless devices connected i was able to configure Multicast with the default RTS threshold, while also disabling IGMP Snooping, setting wifi channel on 3 also.
