    Hi all,

    Hope anybody can help with a (for me) weird problem.
    I have a dumb switch where the show computer and a coupple ecg-p12 connects. all is working fine.
    On the same switch I have a wifi-accespoint (engenius enh200ext) that connects to a wifi-bridge (engenius enh200ext) and the bridge is connected to an ecg-p2. When I power everything up the multicast traffic doesn't reach the ecg-p2.
    If I disconnect the network cable from the ecg-p2 and put this in a computer with sacnview and than put the same cable back in the ecg-p2 I can control the lights for some minute's and than they stop responding again.
    If I put the network cable back in the computer and than back in the ecg-p2 all works again for some minutes. and stops again.

    If I put a switch between the wifi-bridge and the ecg-p2 and connect a computer with sacnview the multicast "keeps flowing"
    I've also tried other wifi hardware but that gave the same result.

    Anybody any idea how I can resolve this so that everything keeps working?

    Thanks in advance!
    Robert

    Are you doing any routing or is everything in the same broadcast range?

    I don't know if it's for firmware 2.7 but in this post http://auschristmaslighting.com/forums/index.php?topic=432.0 j1sys give's info on uni- and multicast. this and an updated firmware on my wifi-router was stil a no go. When I turned "enhanced multicast support" off in the ubiquity router all is working well for now.....

    Thanks all for helping, here and in the chat's!

    greetings, robert
