This is usually the name that you use in your email address. For example, if your main mail account is
JerAB@ISP.com, you would type JerAB in this field. Some ISPs (like Mindspring, Earthlink, and T-DSL) require
that you use your full email address when you log in. If your ISP requires your full email address, type it in this
7. In the Password field, enter the password for the ISP connection.
8. In the Service Name field, enter a service name.
If your ISP did not provide a service name, leave this field blank.
The default setting of the Connection Mode menu is Always On to provide a steady IPv6
connection. The router never terminates the connection. If the connection is terminated, for
example, when the modem is turned off, the router attempts to reestablish the connection
immediately after the PPPoE connection becomes available again.
9. 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 DHCPv6 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).
10. (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 address.
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 upon 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.
With a 6rd tunnel configuration, the router follows the RFC5969 standard, supporting two ways to establish a 6rd
tunnel IPv6 WAN connection:
