Re: Thinking about this router R7000 ?

searay, And yet you continue buying Netgear routers one after another... Why not just go for another brand then if ipv6 is so important to you. I don't need it and will not use it until they flip the switch on ipv4.

Just one comment, what if IPv6 doesn't work right on your router when when need it? Just a hypothetical, though, and we all know how useless hypotheticals are *smile*.

Re: Thinking about this router R7000 ?

Well I am going to hypothetically assume that Netgear will fix ipv6 pretty quickly if suddenly ipv4 no longer available, but right now it's obviously low priority. If they don't, I would simply buy another router, it's not the end of the world. I have been that route many times with different products and brands.

Re: Thinking about this router R7000 ?

Yes, I see that you have, from your .sig file there *smile*. I agree it isn't the end of the world if you have to buy a new router, there are more expensive things to complain about, like a couple of months of cable TV, phone, and internet costs me more than a new router. For me, it's the principle of it, I don't like to buy new stuff too close on the heels of other expensive items that accomplish the same purpose. So I'm very unhappy with Netgear leaving this IPv6 problem unfixed for so long. It doesn't give me any confidence that they're capable of fixing it, which is what really bothers me.

Re: Thinking about this router R7000 ?

I have IPv6 enabled on most of my devices including the R7000 router. It hands out both IPv6 and IPv4 addresses on the LAN with no problem. It also has both addresses.

However, my ISP (Verizon FIOS) does not currently use IPv6 so it is only LAN.

What is the problem that others are having?

I "almost" sent mine back before the return period ended...

THEN I tried DD-WRT Firmware and it worked good and gave me more confidence in the hardware.

THEN Netgear (kind of) released firmware version 1.0.2.241_1.0.17 (which can be downloaded in the AVS forum directly from Netgear). Since running that, all of the Wireless signal degradation problems went away and I've been quite pleased.

The support is lacking through the normal support channels.

That being said, I WOULD recommend the router, as long as you run at least the version above. Netgear is on the brink of releasing a new Public firmware version. I only wish they would have put their beta versions directly this site... then many of the users would have hung in with them.




Do you have a link to the1.0.2.241_1.0.17 Firmware download? Can we still get it?

The problem is when rebooting, power cycling or the router reboots on it's own and IPV6 is enabled the router will not get a IPV4 IP form the modem.

Well I'm not using IPv6 until Verizon starts using IPv6 on my subnet, so thats fine with me for the time being, I have enough security in effect, that won't affect me for a while.

Searay doesn't even look like you have Netgear. According to this post you have Cisco router 🙂

Great!
The problem is not getting IPV6, it's getting any IP after rebooting, once IPV6 is enabled. Have you rebooted with it enabled? Also check to see if it reverts to 6 to 4 tunneling.

Re: Thinking about this router R7000 ?

Just curious if you IPv6 users have tried the online IPv6 port scanners (Chappell family and grc.com are two of them) to see how your router's firewall is doing at keeping unused ports in stealth mode *smile*...you may (or may not) be in for a surprise:

http://ipv6.chappell-family.com/ipv6tcptest/

https://www.grc.com/intro.htm

For the second URL (grc.com), hover over "Services" in the upper left hand toolbar, and click on "Shields Up!". And follow that path to the port scanner. Grc.com is an interesting web site, lots on security there.
