Enabling DLNA causes wired network problems



It took me a long time to diagnose but I eventually found that enabling DLNA Services on my two 320 IAPs for my small network was causing a major problem.  Our main router experiences packet loss when we enable DLNA, the main switch seems overloaded and several network services stop functioning properly.  While not required, I am interested in figuring out which client is causing the problem and why it has such a great effect on the network.  I assumed it was a broadcast storm of some sort, but my analysis hasn't shown anything significant in my tests.  I have no idea what's causing the problem, but am interested in ideas.


Thanks in advance.
