I have been operating some time now with IPV6 enabled and continue to avoid the DNS problems. But, there is a slight connection delay after Windows starts that wasn't present before. I assume some sort of resolution or address assignment is taking place.

Re: I have been operating some time now with IPV6 enabled and continue to avoid the DNS problems

What router model are you referring too?

What Firmware version is currently loaded?
What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?

 

Please give more details on "slight connection delay after Windows starts that wasn't present before". What exactly are you experiencing? 

Does this happen if you disable IPv6? 

This happen on on devices?

So need more details besides "broke". Not helpful on what is really happening. 

What is actually happening for these items. Please post screen captures would be helpful.

What browser are you using? 

Happens with different browsers? 

What ISP are you using? They support IPv6 6to4? Seen some where there depreciating some 6to4 services. 

What brand and model modem are you using?

Use the NIST Internet Time Servers Atomic Clocks for your NTP Settings.

Are sure your ISPs IPv6 protocol is 6to4. Do they have IPv6? Who is your ISP.

What about them are "broke"?

What was your "usual" reset and restart "afresh"?

Hi,

 

I updated my R8000P to this firmware last night, performed a factory reset and setup from scratch.

 

DNS seems to be working fine without IPv6 enabled.

 

Address Reservation under LAN Setup

Adding a reservation either via the table or manually you get the message below:

NTP settings were not working when I first setup, but trying again just now has worked fine.

NTP setting where stuck on Data West Line and wouldn’t change regardless of how many times I clicked apply! 

6tot4 tunnel doesn’t enable ipv6 when applied


Reservations fire out an invalid Mac error

 

all worked perfectly when I went back to .68! 👍🏻

gonna wait til My Armor sub expires and buy another brand router as the r8000p is nearly 4yrs old and the FW has been broken for 3 of them! 🤯

Are you seeing any errors after you apply the change? 

What happens if you change to a different time zone or set a manual custom NTP server?

What browser are you using? Try a different browser? 

Be sure all browser caches are clear. 

 

What is the Mfr and model# of the Internet Service Providers modem/ONT the NG router is connected too?
Be sure your using a good quality LAN cable between the modem and router. CAT6 is recommended. 

Which model router do you have? 

 

Did you apply the FW and reboot the router or did you factory reset and setup from scratch? 

Is this happening across all devices? 

Did you reboot ALL Devices after the FW was load on the router?
