I need help Microsoft. Can you please answer this question. Is IGMP disabled in Windows 8 ?? I cannot get my Windows 8 client to receive multicasts over Wireless. Over wired it works. If I put in the IGMP registry fix then multicasts start working
on wireless. This makes no sense, because if it is enabled on wired network shouldn't it be enabled on wireless network too?
IGMP is disabled by default. Currently there are no articles to explain the reasons. If there is any update I will post here.
Please remember to click “Mark as Answer” on the post that helps you, and to click “Unmark as Answer” if a marked post does not actually answer your question. This can be beneficial to other community members reading the thread. ”
It is important to note that once I put in the reg fix, then only SOME multicasts worked not all.
