What you’ll often find is that these devices are often rebadged.  This means you will need to manage to get your request carried *very* far upstream before anybody vaguely knows what you’re talking about.

I once had a batch of NetComm NB14Wn routers where I was encountering similar multicast issues, and it was actually a ZyXEL device under the hood.  Incidentally, I once stumbled across a Billion device that was exactly the same ZyXEL under the hood.

I won’t tell you about my currently open support tickets with NetComm lest this turn into a rantfest...
