Router Setup

Alfacast application uses router for discovery, connection, streaming and viewing video. You should connect all devices with alfacast application to the same router. It does not matter the type of connection which you use. You can use WiFi or Ethernet connection, the application supports both of them.

If you have some kind discovery or connectivity problems you can try to follow through the next steps:

  • You can try to disable IPv6 protocol on you router and reboot it. The alfacast application uses only IPv4 protocol
  • Disable Client Isolation option on the router
  • Disable WPA, please use pure WPA2 standard on the WiFi router
  • Decrease your DTIM Interval on the WiFi router down to 1 (one)
  • Disable 802.11 Power Save mode on the WiFi router and your devices
  • Upgrade router’s firmware to the last version
  • Try to select more cleaner router’s WiFi channel
  • Switch Transmission Power to the maximum value on the WiFi router
  • Move your devices closer to the WiFi router
  • Try to reboot your network router, streaming and viewer devices
  • Try to use better router with correct UDP broadcast support
