    Ignoring Multicast Packets

    I'm wondering if I can set individual ports on my Dlink switches to ignore Multicast Packets.

    The problem is that when I image using WDS my wireless network goes haywire and stops servicing wireless clients.

    After a little investigation all I can find is that the AP's are getting flooded with this data, and being as I will not be imaging over wireless for some time I was wondering if I could tell individual ports to ignore Multicast traffic?, so the the traffic never gets to the AP's?
