Zero Network Broadcast Address

Hello everybody
I use imx233-MICRO plus AX88772 usb-eth adapter.
Among others, i run a UDP "server" daemon to receive and send broadcast messages.
This is useful in order to dicover a MICRO into a local network, no matter its initial network  settings and furthermore be able to assign a compatible IP address, subnet etc.
The problem is that although it responds to specific network broadcast address (for example it doesn't happen the same with the "zero network" broadcast address
I was wondering if there is some place to enable it (perhaps in the AX88772 driver or so)

Best Regards
