Slow or failed SMB, samba (nmb), mDNSResponder, avahi (mdns) based name resolution over wifi

Modern wifi router / access point devices got a multicast rate limit option, with default low value, like 1M. Usually this is OK. But if your daily work needs samba or mdns based name resolution heavily, the default value may be too low. Raise it a higher value should help.
