Netgear GS724T Switches



  • WE have several Netgear GS724T switches that unicast just fine up to 23 clients at a wonderfull 1gib/min, now if i multicast with these switches the speed drops to 300mib/min… i see nothing about mutli-cast short of the storm control… as its explained in the help on the router web interface its to stop flooding of packets… and not what i am looking for… Can someone possibly lend me a hand with getting this working? do i need jumbo frames enabled?



  • [quote=“chad-bisd, post: 14605, member: 18”]You may have to configure multicast groups/preferences in the switch. We use DLINK DGS-3120 POE series switches, and they had some advanced settings for making Multicast work for some other applications.

    A few things to note about multicast. They only go as fast as the slowest client, and I believe use a lot more memory on the server as the image is decompressed on the server before being sent out to all the clients.[/quote]

    all our machines are brand new Dell latitude 3330’s with Identical spec’s and all imaged perfectly with unicast. I am not sure our switches truly support multicast. Despite Netgear claiming they do.
