I have a NLSU unlslung with firefly running well – I have been trying to get the server visable in itunes via wireless without any joy. I have come across what I think is the issue which is one of multicast. There is no option for this on my Belkin wireless G router so am unable to check it. If I need to change my wireless router which one should I go for to allow for multicasting and sorting out my problem ❓
I really can vouch for the Linksys WRT54G series. There is a whole range of models, but be sure to pick one that is supported by 3rd party firmware like OpenWRT.
I’ve got 3 WRT54Gs (v1.1, v2 and GL) and they all work like a charm.
Even without the 3rd party firmware they forward multicasts etc. in the LAN just fine.
which powers my main slug setup. Firefly on slug shows up perfectly on a wireless Mac in iTunes. Equally I don’t see any multicast option in the router menus, but first up try switching to a different channel from the default.
Then, if possible or something similar:
Under Wireless> Channel & SSID
have: 54g-auto enabled 54g protection ON Turbo Mode – Frame-bursting Mode
If there is some other mixed-mode option, check it as your Roku is a b-mode device.
you don’t mention the Roku’s location relative to the router. Bear in mind walls, distance & other interference/environmental factors which may have a bearing on things…
