This is OK and for machine connected either in the main network switch or in the router switch ( remote over an ethernet over powerline bridge) and
thus I can have the same music playing in two buildings....BUT.......
The router is also a wireless router and any device connected to the wireless does not get the multicast (Netgear DG854G).
I am assuming that the router will not take the multicast from a LAN port and spit out on the WiFi connection?
Any ideas anyone otherwise I will have to buy another ethernet over power adapter to pick up the multicast by the HiFi.

I think I'm surprised that it won't take the multicast, surely it's just a stream of information in the same way as, say, receiving a fax. Maybe
you need to work out the settings for the router. I don't know if you know Pot-head Pixie over at T? Some find him difficult to get on with but he
talked me through setting up my DG834G.
I realise you know more about these things than I do, and that I might just be blethering on, but I have been known to spark the flame that eventually
reaches the correct solution even if it has been because I've been totally wrong.

Thanks for the heads-up, I have managed to crack into the router firmware (built on busybox linux) but it is limited to what you can do. I do not
think this version lets multicast traverse from LAn to WiFi - later versions of the router do
