RBK852 - Can’t get IPv6 (CloudFlare) to Work Properly

Hello. Just purchased the Orbi RBK852 mesh system and it works great - except for getting IPv6 to work.

My ISP is Spectrum and I’m using CloudFlare. The Netgear IPv6 drop-down selection offers many options (see image). Initially I chose the “auto detect“ option and used the following protocols for CloudFlare:

2606:4700:4700:0000:0000:0000:0000:1111

2606:4700:4700:0000:0000:0000:0000:1001

I applied the settings and rebooted the router and ran some IPv6 tests, which confirmed I had enabled IPv6. However subsequent testing showed I was not connected via IPv6 and also my internet connection became slow/unresponsive - including dropping some connections.

For Spectrum internet using CloudFlare, should I select the “auto config” option (or choose something else) and do I need to do anything else in that page?

Also should I enable IPv6 (recommended or not) with the Orbi system?

Netgear has set up a community forum specifically for the Orbi AX (WiFi 6) products. Most of the people who watch that forum are more likely to have experience with Orbi AX and know how to work it better than those of us who follow this "general Orbi" forum. Might be more likely to find someone who has a solution if the question is posted there:
