I think so, but make sure your internet connection is fast enough, if your streaming to wireless clients use Draft N for max bandwith (up to 300mpbs) and enabling QOS would prioritise IPTV traffic.

 

MPEG-4 H.264, VP6, VC-1) are designed to consume 1-2.5Mbit/s.

 

three rooms watching three different channels of live TV encoded at 1.5Mbit/s would need 4.5Mbit/s bandwidth, with an additional guarantee of 1Mbit/s to compensate for network overhead and transit problems.

 

100 live TV channels in 4Mbit/s MPEG-2, you would need 400Mbit/s backhaul multicast bandwidth.

I am requesting this information from corporate now, as the US does not support this router.

This will support multicasting with firmware 1.51. Please contact your local support to see if 1.51 is available.

Thank you for your replies.

I've got this router with 1.60 firmware. My ISP translates television through milticast (ip adresses 226.x.x.x). Their support staff said that I need to enable multicast support on my router, but it seems every multicast setting is in the wireless section and I tried all combinations without any success.

I would contact your local support, this is not a US firmware, I do not want to mislead you.
