Question regarding Multicast Helper, buffering & keepalive frames

Tue Jul 10, 2018 5:33 pm

Hi guys, quick Question regarding Multicast Helper, buffering & keepalive frames.

What options and settings should I have these set to for a typical home network? (2 story house).

Thanks

It is enabled by default.. Is there any documentation that disabling this feature will reduce battery consumption and won't introduce new issues, e.g. loss of connectivity?
