Orbi RBK50: Any way to enable IGMP Snooping?
Have recently gotten the Orbi as it solved both a wirless issue as well as having enough ethernet ports near my Home Theatre PC. Issue I have is Multicast traffic which is absolutely smashing my Orbi's and ultimately anything connected to them comes to a grinding halt eventually.
I need to get IGMP Snooping enabled to get this traffic under control. I am using the Orbi in AP mode as they are sitting behind a PFSense firewall. Are the Orbi's capable of IGMP Snooping? If not, is this possible to get implented? If not I'll likely have to return my Orbi and get a single advanced wireless router that does support IGMP snooping (or VLANs) and hope the coverage will be good enough.

Any managed network switches in the mix? Other have reported that managed switches with IGMP protocols enabled have problems with Orbi systems, so I presume IGMP is not a good thing for the Orbi.
Users are encouraged to use NON Managed switches. I have several switches and don't see issues with any of my mutlti-cast media. Dish Hopper and 3 wired Joeys, 2 xbox consoles and Boxee Box.
