Yes, it will make a difference.

The problem is that your system is inconsistent.

First, the computer doesn't know where to send your pings, because (as
you can see above) there are multiple routes, each with the
same priority.

This also triggers the problem with the multicast group, because IPv4
multicast groups are registered by using the SOURCE IP of the interface
(not the interface index)... which is not unique in your case.

I am in the process of setting up a group of VMs to test the openwrt
IPv4 only case, but you can already test your setup with some unique
network masks.

use,, and for lan1/2/3
and wlan0 for example.
