R7000 DHCPv6 PD Support for Firmware 1.0.7.6

I live in Switzerland and my Service Provider Init7 demands DHCPv6 PD in order for Ipv6 to work. Will there be DHCPv6 PD support in this product sometime?  This is an old Problem und i read in Internet there was sometime a BETA Firmware which worked but unfortunately i cannot find this version which by now must be not uptodate. Why is this Feature not implemented since 2014 when the problem occured initialy. Can somebody please help.

Thanks in advance

Hi nikolasmoraitis,

 

The device supports the DHCPv6 PD.

Hi James, It doesn't. Or if it should, then it's broken. DHCPv6 PD has never worked for me with any (stable) Netgear firmware.

I'm also at Init7 in Switzerland. They support DHCPv6 PD, but the R7000 is not able to get an IPv6 address. From the manual, The R7000 supports DHCPv6. But this is not the same as DHCPv6 PD.

I asked Netgear support about a year ago about this. They said that they don't support DHCPv6 PD, but that they will add it on their list and that it will be implemented if more people request it. Nothing happened since then.

 

@JamesGL: can you show us some link to the technical specification or a manual of the R7000 where it says that it supports DHCPv6 PD? Because then we would be able to debug it some more and issue a bug report.

I have been in contact with the support and even tested a beta firmware with them. There it showed that their firmware can do DHCPv6 PD on the WAN side, but then doesn't forward that address to the LAN side. Netgear does not treat this as a bug, and they do not plan to implement this as a feature.

I'm looking for a different brand now.

The Solution is to use the Firmware of xwrt-Merlin. He resolved the Issue with DHCPv6 PD for this Router.
