How to Fix AirPlay After Updating to iOS 6 – Verizon Fios Routers

Okay so after I updated  my iPhone to iOS 6 airplay didn’t work with my Apple TV. If you’re reading this I’m assuming yours isn’t working either. Oh and let me guess you are probably on a Verizon Fios customer. I did a little bit of research and it turns out there is a setting in some Verizon Fios routers called IGMP Proxy which is enabled by default. If you disable this setting it will get your airplay back up and running in no time. If you don’t subscribe to Verizon Fios you can still try and disable this feature but you are on your own when it comes to how to accomplish that. Here is how it you get it done on a Verizon Fios router.

Disable IGMP Proxy on a Verizon Fios Router

  1. go to
  2. login to the router using the user: admin and password: password1 or your login provided by Verizon.
  3. Click Advance and click “yes” to the warning.
  4. Click IGMP Proxy
  5. Click the Enable box and select Disable
  6. Click Apply

Now try your Airplay again and you should see that it’s working again.
