  • Typically, you do not need to modify the default IGMP router settings. You should modify these settings only after you have made a careful analysis of your network.

  • Items on the Router tab are available only if IGMP router mode is enabled on the selected interface.

  • By default, IGMP protocol version 3 is selected. To change the IGMP protocol version, select a different version when configuring a new interface for IGMP, or change the version an interface uses by right-clicking the interface and selecting Properties.
