G3100 router IPv6 Configuration Control

Message 1 of 3
(4,398 Views)

Just setting up G3100 and I see IPv6 is Enable, but on  the Fios Home Router Status page the status is "Disconnected".    Is this available or not?  What are the correct setting to get connected?  How do I find out if it is available in my area?

Adding my two cents.

 

#1 Yes available but limited areas.

 

#2 Settings =

 

DHCPv6-PD with Prefix Delegation 56

 

For the DNS Servers either:

 

a) Auto obtain

 

b) Or enter in the IPv6 DNS Servers of your choice. This means for example if you want to use the OpenDNS IPv6 DNS Servers instead of what Verizon Provides

 

For LAN =Unknown for sure. I seen users use Stateless

 

For Interfaces, all of them.

 

#3 If IPv6 is enabled on your area, the router should pull an IPv6 block shortly and begin assigning addresses to your devices.

Yeah, we've seen evidence of it in...

 

- Ashburn, VA
- Richmond/Midlothian, VA
- Spotsylvania, VA
- Waltham, MA

 

There was a report from Woodbridge VA, but they switched routers before providing a screenshot showing it working, and it wasn't working on their non-Verizon router.
