Using 2 consumer grade access points what is the behavior of when multicast packets are sent between them.
Consider -> AP1 -> AP2
(Note that AP1 & AP2 are connected over the LAN ports to the network. WAN connections are not used and everything can be considered on the same network.)
Consider a muticast packet which is seen by AP1, sent from the network. Assuming these access points know nothing about multicast then they will behave the same way as it it was a broadcast.
Even with nothing connected to AP2 the packet would still be transmitted to AP2? And then retransmitted by AP2? (I think this would be only if AP2 had anything connected it by wireless, other than AP1)
With multiple PC behind AP2 (wired connection) would this still be the same behavior or would AP1 send multiple packets to each of the PC behind AP2?
