What does the Multicast rate mean for my Wifi?
Can some please explain to me what the Multicast rate does for my wireless network? It is under the wireless options in the Airport utility. I have experienced a bit of slow down since adding a second computer, and was wondering if changing this setting would help any.

Multicast Rate: the multicast rate is the rate by which your Base Station sends a single message to a select group of computers on your network. In simple terms, if you use a lot of streaming content, you're better off setting a higher multicast rate to improve streaming performance but this has the effect of reducing the effective range of your network. If your usage patterns doesn't require high loads on your WiFi network but instead longer range, lowering the muti cast rate extends your WiFi coverage.
