I had bought this amazing Denon receiver that has this thing called Airplay. Basically I should be able to go to my iphone and select a song to play and then seemlessly have it played over the denon connected to my home theater system. Anyways, it didn't work.
I called Denon and complained and they said it's probably my router. I thought, how could it be the router? I called verizon and they said it must be a problem with the Denon. Then I called Apple and they blamed the router. Ok so 2 against the router, 1 against Denon....
IT WAS THE ROUTER!!!! I found a forum saying to disable IGMP proxy on the verizon router. Once I did this everything worked great.
1.) is disabling the IGMP proxy going to have any negative effects??
2.) why does verizon provide such terrible routers? I want an N network. If I buy my own router can I still use it, or am I stuck with verizon's router?
Some of that is foreign to me as to how a home user would benifit unless they were doing something more than a regular normal internet user would do.
I think it's more for Verizon than it is for you, but I have a really elementary knowledge of it. sorry I couldn't give you a better breakdown on it.
