7. (Optional) In the DHCP Domain Name (If Required) field, enter a domain name.
You can type the domain name of your IPv6 ISP. Do not enter the domain name for
the IPv4 ISP here. For example, if your ISP’s mail server is mail.xxx.yyy.zzz, type
xxx.yyy.zzz as the domain name. If your ISP provided a domain name, type it in this
field. For example, Earthlink Cable might require a host name of home, and Comcast
sometimes supplies a domain name.
8. Select an IP Address Assignment radio button:
•Use DHCP Server. This method passes more information to LAN devices but
some IPv6 systems might not support the DHCv6 client function.
•Auto Config. This is the default setting.
This setting specifies how the router assigns IPv6 addresses to the devices on your
home network (the LAN).
9. (Optional) Select the Use This Interface ID check box and specify the interface ID
to be used for the IPv6 address of the router’s LAN interface.
If you do not specify an ID here, the router generates one automatically from its MAC
10. Select an IPv6 Filtering radio button:
•Secured. In secured mode, which is the default mode, the router inspects both
TCP and UDP packets.
• Open. In open mode, the router inspects UDP packets only.
11. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
Set Up an IPv6 6rd Internet Connection
The 6rd protocol makes it possible to deploy IPv6 to sites using a service provider’s
IPv4 network. 6rd uses the service provider’s own IPv6 address prefix. This limits the
operational domain of 6rd to the service provider’s network and is under direct control
of the service provider. The IPv6 service provided is equivalent to native IPv6. The 6rd
mechanism relies on an algorithmic mapping between the IPv6 and IPv4 addresses that
are assigned for use within the service provider’s network. This mapping allows for
automatic determination of IPv4 tunnel endpoints from IPv6 prefixes, allowing stateless
operation of 6rd.
