6rd support

Hello, my isp supports ipv6 6rd, but I don't see any support for it in the R7000 configuration. How do I set that up?

Follow the instructions beginning on page 25 of the R7000 manual to get that going. Smiley Happy

You might want to read ALL the threads regarding r7000 & IPV6 before you enable it.:confused:

It doesn't seem there are any 6rd options. Just 6to4 being the closest.

Re: 6rd support

There is no option in IPv6 settings for 6rd. This would mean it does not support that type of connection. You can check the manual for any other options that you can use.

FWIW I just got 6rd working on the R7000 using DD-WRT

minions08,

I don't have those options. I can't just force huge corporations to change what they offer. Why doesn't a top-end router have this feature?

My ISP does 6rd. I was able to use IPv6 Pass-Through and the clients get the IP from the ISP.

Re: 6rd support

Sorry to necropost like this, but Netgear had officially released 6rd support in the 2/11/2015 firmware update. Unfortunately, 6rd still doesn't seem to work according to the instructions Charter Communications is presenting [1]. There are some conflicting instructions on the web [2] that Charter somehow supports 6to4 with some static IP configurations. Has anyone else been able to get 6rd working with the latest firmware?
