Apple TV over Wireless

Hi,

We are trying to work our wireless Apple devices with our Wired Apple TV system.

Apple TV is connected to a layer 2 switch as an access port and our 5508 WLC's are connected to another Layer 2 switch with a trunk port. And the two switches are connected to each other. Wired Apple TV and Wireless Apple clients are all in the same vlan.

I enabled broadcast forwarding  / global multicast / IGMP snooping on the controllers, disabled P2P blocking, checked the data rates (9Mbps for the only mandatory data rate). However although the clients can ping the Apple TV IP address it cannot discover it automatically.

When we plug an Apple laptop on the switch it can discover the Apple TV, however when the client is connected via wireless it cannot discover.

What can be the reason, is there anybody who had this issue and solved?

Thanks

Sinan

On WLC, Try AP Multicast mode to Unicast.
