   1. Is it possible to use IPTV more on the router? I want to use IPTV on multiple LAN ports.

  • The router doesn't support to use multiple IPTV with 1 router's LAN ports in the same time.
  • The IPTV function that the router provides could only set up 1 IPTV at once.


   2. Can I use IPTV services through a WiFi network?

  • Generally, most IPTV STB (Set-up-box) need to connect cable to establish the IPTV connection, so the setting through cable is must in this case.
  • The IPTV setting requirement depends on the IPTV service provider.  We suggest user to check with IPTV service provider to check if equipment could support to use through WiFi and if is there specific setting required.
