UTDCole - I agree - You Rock!
I've been trying to get my DLNA connection to work for weeks. Even contacted LG (my TV maker), to no avail. I was about to return the TV to Best Buy and try again. But Voila! Followed your instructions and I'm connected. Even the connection to my tablet in the house has been better! I was about to to have that looked at too!
Thanks a lot man! I'm going to pass this info on.
Sory but UTDCole's solution does nto work on MI424WR-GEN3I hardware version I firmware version 40.19.36. In fact in this version there is no IGMP proxy option at all. I called Verizon support and they want me to sign the premier support contract to even look at it. Thats basically a support cost of $150 for a problem that Verizon has created to begin with!
If you update the firmware from version 40.19.36 to 40.19.20 it the IMPG will be in the router. Worked perfectly for me until Actiontec or VZ started pushing the .36 out to the routers and erasing my config file. Now as soon as I plug into the WAN it updates the router...I cannot stop it from updating everytime it connects to the internet. I have inquired with Actiontec how to stop this...VZ is no help at all in this situation and didn't even know what I was talking about. Now the ONLY solution I can find is to save the .20 on my desk top and anytime I need my DLNA I move the firmware to .20 and leave my router unplugged from the internet...insane!!
Logon to the Router: http://192.168.1.1
Go tt; advanced --> yes --> firmware upgrade
Change to "automatic check disabled"
Also yolu may want to see if you can add a Firewall advanced rule to Block Incoming TCP port 4567.
Thius way the Router will not auto update and Vz can't get a force and update.
I'm having the same problem with I Gen. I have tried to downgrade the firmware with Automatic Update Check set to off. It would update it first but then it will reboot in a minute after and reset the version back to the latest one. The reason I paid 80 bucks for this router is to be able to stream HD content from my DLNA media server over WIFI w/o hiccups. What a waste!
If anyone knows a trick on how to get rid of that stupid firmware version please post it here!
I was hoping that wouldn't be the case. Later versions of Firmware have some kind of logic that blocks the creation of a Firewall rule to block incoming TCP port 4567.
I wonder if there is a command that can be entered in a Telnet session that bypasses that.
