Orbi loosing IPv6 routing ability consistently

I have a consistent problem with a (latest firmware) Orbi system in that it continues to loose IPv6 fucntionality (but not addresses) - and this seems to mirror a bug Netgear has with other routers as well.

 

I have native dual-stack - and I use DHCP to successfully get IPv6 addresses. All my devices get dual-stack addresses and work - for about 1-3 days. Then, while my devices all retain their IPv6 routing info (as does Orbi), there is NO communication on '6' anymore.

I need to refresh and "Apply" in the Orbi IPv6 pane to fix it - but have to do that literally every day now.

 

There have been other posts with IPv6 tunnel and other (non-native) implemntaitons. What gives? Something Netgear is working on?

 

thx

Re: Orbi loosing IPv6 routing ability consistently

Hm.... no takers?

This seems to be a common problem with Netgear routers, not just the Orbi.

Are there just so few users with native / dual-stack IPv6 today?

 

This is my #1 frustration with Orbi / Netgear right now and I would hope there is some attention put to it at Netgear...
