Hello All

An update on the problems being experienced with wireless access points, Multicast and iPads.

We originally tested the iPad 1 with a variety of access points, and recommended the Belkin N600 HD, as it worked in both 2.4 and 5 Ghz modes, and with multicast enabled.

Since the release of iPad 2, Apple have made available iOS 4.3 for use with the iPad and iPad 2. It appears this update causes the Belkin to no longer work in multicast mode enabled.

If you google “multicast and iOS 4.3” they’re are some hints that authentication and DNS code has been changed.

We’re currently investigating the issue, and talking to the access point manufacturers as well as testing different hardware vendors to come up with a solution.

Please be patient while we look for a solution.
