I have problems on my local network related to IGMP / Multicast traffic and one of the main culprits appears to be my OpenEVSE unit.
It is connected via WiFi to a dedicated Devolo AP which then connects over powerline to my LAN.
The traffic contributes to the clogging of my network but also swamps the link to the OpenEVSE unit, causing it to become no-responsive on occasions.
The unit is sending anything between 3 and 8 packets a second to the multicast address of 126.96.36.199 with a protocol type of ‘Membership Report group’ according to Wireshark.
Any idea why it is doing this so frequently? Can it be stopped?
There is a group query packet about every two minutes from an IGMP proxy on the router but presumably that would elicit only one response from the OpenEVSE, not several hundred?
