Does anyone know if the basic, off the shelf Linksys workgroup switches (e.g. EZX855W) perform IGMP snooping?  I'd like to use a low cost switch that does not perform any snooping.

It is unmanaged, so I suppose there is no igmp snooping.

I concur with the logic that it is unmanged adn therefore IGMP snooping should not be plausible.  However, I've seen some odd things occur and also read about some private, custom algorithms used to manage traffic and am not completely convinced it is a basic switch and the documentation doesn't help much in this regard.  I suspect that it is a basic switch but I still have some doubt.  Thanks for your input though.

Thanks for your reply.
My way of thought is the following: if that switch has builtin IGMP snooping functions, it should be possible to switch them off. for this purpose the switch should be managed.
However, this particular switch is unmanaged, so you can't expect any clever logic from it.
