While fiddling around with ipv6 settings , ipv6 for WAN indicated ‘Not available’
Noticed the LAN ipv6 took, but not having ipv6 the way I normally see it configured. I downgraded back to previous firmware.

Hi RajaDaja, 

 

Thanks for the feedback. Were you able to perform a factory reset after the firmware update?

Yes, right after firmware update. Still no ipv6 configuration. IPv6 test fails . Online gaming shows ipv4. Use to show both . I guess I’m not missing much without ipv6. Oh well???

Re: RAX200 Firmware Version 1.0.2.88 breaks ipv6

I am having similar problems with the IPV6 disappearing after the latest firmware upgrade.  The problem is that the updgrade includes many features that make my many IoT devices connect consistently to the router. My iPhoneXsMax connected to the router shows 2 IPV6 addresses, but my desktop and iPad do not.  I also have an EAX80 hardwired to the router using CAT6 cabling as an AP for the upstairs - it also does not show an IPV6 address.  The Xfinity .  This is really frustrating that after spending $850 for these high end devices, all I get is a new problem.  I installed the prior firmware on the routr, power cycled the cable modem several times (and between the set ups), reset the router and reconfigured things manually (not using a backup), and then upgraded, rest the router and updated things manually - I have spent way too many hours trying to get this high end equipment to function.  PLEASE RELEASE A TESTED, FULLY FUNCTIONAL FIRMWARE UPDATE.  PLEASE. I AM SO FRUSTRATED.

I totally agree with you. Netgear firmware is riskier than ever. I want ipv6 functionality, it provides a more optimal gaming experience So I am currently on 1.0.2.8 firmware where I have ipv6 throughout my network of +30 devices. Still issues but tolerable......

Re: RAX200 Firmware Version 1.0.2.88 breaks ipv6

Just wondering if any updates for this?  Recently purchased an RAX200, and could not get it to pick up an IP from our business ISP.

Returned/Exchanged the router and no-go. Contacted support again and the answer is known issue, find another way to get internet access working or get a different router...not cool. So that's 2 being returned/sent back.

 

Anyone have any updates on a fix or firmware to use or other workaround?

 

Just as a sanity check, I also tried with firmware: https://kb.netgear.com/000062038/RAX200-Firmware-Version-1-0-2-92-Hot-Fix

 

But still cannot pick-up an IPv6 address.  Put in our R8000P and a Linksys EA8300 and both are able to aquire IPv6 addresses, so it's not my ISP, definately this device/firmware.

While you're waiting, 

 

From my experience, F/W  V1.0.2.8_1.0.45  is the most stable with ipv6 functionality. Been on it for a while. Tried all the F/W available, even one from Netgear Mode, which by the way, work great for a while then the internet just froze while working. I panicked and did a quick F/W downgrade back to.........you guessed it.....V1.0.2.8_1.0.45. Been good ever since. I have Auto update disable. Good luck
