    Hi,

    I can not use IGMP proxy on my AX88U with the last Merlin firmware, I got this message :

    "Due to hardware limitation, IGMP proxy cannot co-exist with IPTV function."

    The IGMP proxy worked 1 time, but I don't know why

    Same result
    I have my ISP modem connected to the WAN of my AX88U and the IGMP proxy is for the ISP TV player
    I also did a factory reset but same result

    Yes. it looks but there no mention of the AX88
    Maybe a software issue ?

    The RT-AC86U and RT-AX88U both share the same platform (Broadcom HND 5.02), so it would make sense for both to share the same limitations.

    Same hardware platform as these two, so yes.

    An alternative would be to put a managed switch, like the Netgear GS105V2 between your router and the internet connection. In my case it's enough to enable IGMP Snooping to separate multicast traffic (IPTV) from unicast traffic (everything else). The switch does also support VLANs.
