It has been observed that driver sets multicast addresses into the firmware only when user assigns IP address to eth interface. This may create a problem in pure mesh mode when no eth interface configured with IP address. In above case, multicast address filter in firmware will not get configured and will drop all received valid multicast packets. Is it by design?
