New here and new to the world of Mikrotik and RouterOS. Been wanting to take a dive for a few years and finally done it. Bought my first Hex and a Hap Lite to have a play around with and replace my RT-N66U loaded with tomato.
Basically I have been having problems with my new IPTV Box (Youview) that uses multicast to stream, it has been drowning my current router and causing problems due to high cpu load and dropping wireless connections or restarting altogether.
I have been trying to set up multicast on the Hex but found it not as straight forward with the obviously steeper learning curve on rOS, I did find a great idea on this forum which involved forwarding all the traffic at switch level from the port that the IPTV is on directly to the port the ISP is on. See link here - viewtopic.php?t=86582
After trying this it appears my router's switch is not cabable of this as described here https://wiki.mikrotik.com/wiki/Manual:S ... p_Features
under the MT7621A.
Is there another clever way of doing this? My modem is a Draytek Vigor 130 running in bridged mode and the router connects using PPPOE so a PPP interface.
Also I am wondering if anyone has any valuable sources i.e books or udemy type services where I can learn in my own time about advanced networking and MikroTik. I have tried udemy but not found it very resourceful.
