Hi Callum

I actually use the Engenius ECB9500 as our workshop router:
http://www.gowifi.co.nz/engenius-networks/engenius-ecb9500-802.11b/g/n-wireless-multifunction-access-point.html

But it has the same problem and none of the engenius routers support multicasting which makes them useless in a big iLive setup.

For those that are interested, I’ve solved the problem.
I changed the iLive networks to run on the 192.168.1.X network.
In the workshop (or if we are connecting to another physical network) I connect it into the Internet port on the belkin. Our workshop runs on the 192.168.0.X network.

To solve the problem I added a static router into our workshop router which uses the Belkin as a gateway onto the 192.168.1.X network.

Now I can be connected to either iLive wifi or workshop wifi or any or either or them as wired networks and it all plays nicely.

I can print or surf the net connected to an iLive rack, or i can connect to an iLive from a desktop PC in our workshop and its routed onto that network via the Belkin.

Multicasting works, but not if you are connected to workshop wifi.
