Openwrt modem software and BT Youview TV

I am becoming increasingly annoyed with BT. I was sold BT sports on BT Tv through pressure selling without being asked what router I was using. After putting a help request into BT I had a call from an engineer saying I had to enable IGMP as BT tv uses multicast. He even admitted to usind a 3rd party router but could not help me. I have spent weeks researching and trying to teach myself  new skills (unsuccesfully). I have a Linksys WRT3200acm which I have flashed with OpenWRT 19.07 as I believe through research that was the more likely firmware to work - unfortunately I can't  make it happen as my skills are not up to it. Can anyone help me please before I cancel my subscription and get something else?

The Linksys documentation is not very informative but I've found a couple of links that might help:-

Doing a search on "Linksys WRT3200 igmp" will throw up some more probably.

BT supplied equipment will obviously work with their susbcription services as will some other modem/routers but not all will but it does seem that yours may well work with either standard firmware or OpenWRT but getting more help might prove difficult.

Thanks for your input @TimCurtis . Unfortunately I tried these solutions a while ago.  The closest I have been was to  put the Youview box on a subnet which got a different IPC error but seemed like progress. Unfortunately the rest of the house lost connection, I got shouted at and had to install a backup!

Re: Openwrt modem software and BT Youview TV

ok I have got a little closer by installing DD-WRT and following this installation guide

I can get the channel line up channel to play but seem to lose all internet connection and get the error IPC6011.


Does anyone know how I bridge the 'bro' interface with my lan? I don't use the wifi of the router as I have linksys velop's attached inbridge mode.
