multicast when AP is in bridge mode

Mon Dec 29, 2008 8:38 am

Hi!

I have a problem with OSPF on point-to-point wireless links. I have determined that the reason is losing multicast packets when they are sent from AP to the client. The AP is in bridge mode (single client).

So the question is: is it possible to change multicast sending mode when AP is a bridge, so that normal "reliable" send mode is used for multicast?

Hi,
I have seen that this is a common issue with wireless links that can be easily fixed by using network type nbma.

What is 'multicast helper' doing?
What is "normal 'reliable' send" mode?

What is network type nbma?
