2. Go to Network > LAN.

3. If your ISP provides the networking service based on IGMP technology, e.g., British Telecom(BT) and Talk Talk in UK:

1) Tick the IGMP Proxy checkbox and select the IGMP Version, either V2 or V3, as required by your ISP.

2) Click Save.

3) After configuring IGMP proxy, IPTV can work behind your router now. You can connect your set-top box to any of the router’s Ethernet port.

If IGMP is not the technology your ISP applies to provide IPTV service:

1) Tick Enable IPTV.

2) Select the appropriate Mode according to your ISP.

• Select Bridge if your ISP is not listed and no other parameters are required.

• Select Custom if your ISP is not listed but provides necessary parameters.

3) After you have selected a mode, the necessary parameters, including the LAN port for IPTV connection, are predetermined. If not, select the LAN type to determine which port is used to support IPTV service.

4) Click Save.

5) Connect the set-top box to the corresponding LAN port which is predetermined or you have specified in Step 3.


Your IPTV setup is done now! You may need to configure your set-top box before enjoying your TV.

Tips: Qos and IPTV cannot be enabled at the same time.
