Re: Can't see other devices with router as MoCA bridge

I don't think it's related to IPv6, but I could be wrong as well.

IGMP is used for a lot of things, but mainly multicast streaming video. Unless you have a specific need for multicast video streaming over your home network right now, turning off the IGMP Proxy probably won't change a thing. I'm guessing if Verizon turned it on at some point, they may be planning to use IGMP for VOD or IPTV in the future. Hopefully they'll fix the Bonjour/ZeroConf issues by then.

Thinkdiff's reasoning makes more sense than mine. And, yes, I hope they do fix the bonjour issues with it. I wouldn't have had a clue how to fix it had I not remembered a thread on here related to multicasting and the IGMP Proxy.
