    I have a DLink DIR 615. And even after I and the DLink technician made the following changes to the router configuration, I still can't view the streaming videos either via my desktop (wired) or my laptop (wireless). But if I connect either one of it directly to the cable modem then I'm able to view the streaming videos.

    I made the following changes to the router configurations.

    advanced -> advanced network ->
    WAN port speed: 10Mbps
    Enable Multicast Streams: checked
    Enable UPnP: unchecked

    Do you have any ideas?

    This is what I try to access

    www.bfmmm.com
    click on the Web TV link at the lower left hand side
    the streaming videos should start shortly. I selected the cable modem speed to view the streaming videos.

    Thanks

    I think I'd reset it to factory defaults and start over. Also, make sure you have the latest firmware loaded, my DIR-615 was a pig with the initial firmware. I have no issue streaming video through mine, FWIW.

    I reset it already and also upgrade the firmware to the latest version but the problem still exists. Can you view that website I mentioned through your DIR 615?

    Is it possible if you can let me know what configuration changes you made to your DIR 615 please? I'm using the latest firmware.

    Thanks

    No configuration changes for me on my DIR 615 and it works just fine.

    Same here, I didn't do anything special to make it work.

    I just tried to go to the site via Firefox, and it deemed the site an attack site. Last nite, Camino did go to the site, but I couldn't make the movie work. Seemed like a scam to me.

    I am having a similar problem with this router, I can not stream music from the Comcast Music Choice web site.
    http://www6.comcast.net/music
    I can view the music videos fine, but all of the music channels are not working.

    I can stream music from other music web sites, It's just not working with the Comcast Music Choice web site.

    I can also stream videos from most video sites, but I have found that I can not stream videos from some web site.
