Re: Linksys EA6300 with Plunet TV

Have a look at this thread (post number 6): https://community.bt.com/t5/YouView-Boxes/Multicast-Settings-for-3rd-Party-Routers-may-not-work/td-p... which links to this: http://www.linksys.com/gb/support-article?articleNum=135006
Try posting on here for help: http://forum.kitz.co.uk/index.php/board,5.0.html and also here: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/forumdisplay.php?f=6 - they have some very good people on there that are super helpful.
A review on Amazon (third one down) suggests it doesn't support multicast: http://www.amazon.co.uk/367/dp/B00CFEBQIE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1440680946&sr=8-1&keywords=Linksys+... but this was in May 2014 and if there have been any recent firmware upgrades for the router, it may indeed work.
Have you called Linksys Customer Support for help?  There are various options to contact support here: http://www.linksys.com/us/support#support-contact - how long ago did you purchase it as you get 90 days support by phone only AFAIK.
Also worth logging into your router and seeing if there is a firmware update to download and install.
Essentially, you need to know if it supports BT IPTV and if it does then it should support plusnet IPTV.
Let me know how you get on.
Rick.

Thanks ricke17
I will have a look as the new plusnet router other than being able to work with You View seems a really old router and looks terrible

Re: Linksys EA6300 with Plunet TV

Had a look and so far looks as though I will need to use the Plus Net router but will try and use my Linksys as the main router / wifi and the Plusnet only for the Internet connection and You View so two routers instead of one bit of a backward step
I can't believe even for a so called free router how bad this is I mean 100mb ports in this day and age

Re: Linksys EA6300 with Plunet TV

It's a shame you're router cannot support iptv. Agreed, the pn one is truly abysmal with very poor wifi.

Re: Linksys EA6300 with Plunet TV

Thinking of using my own router for everything but the internet connection just piggy back them and see if i can get that to work
