So am I right in suggesting:
1) Produce wireless access point that supports multicast over 802.11n
2) ???
3) Profit!

Oops. That probably belongs on Slashdot, not CLUG.

I'm pretty sure that an 802.11b/g/n WAP needs to support multicast  
addresses as part of its spec. Otherwise things like Bonjour wouldn't  
work, since Bonjour uses mDNS. At least, that's my interpretation.
