If you are not connected to the access point/router network but to the same network
as the access point/router, enter the IP address that is assigned to the access
point/router. If you do not know the IP address, see Find the IP address of the access
point/router on page 29.
The Sign-In page displays. You are prompted to sign in with your NETGEAR account.
If the access point/router is not connected to the Internet, you are prompted to sign
in with the local login credentials (see Log in to the access point/router when it is
not connected to the Internet on page 28).

The IPv6 page displays.
6. From the Internet Connection Type menu, select Auto Detect.
The page adjusts. The access point/router automatically detects the information in
the following fields:
•Connection Type. This field indicates the connection type that is detected.
•Router’s IPv6 Address on WAN. This field shows the IPv6 address that is acquired
for the access point/router’s WAN (or Internet) interface. The number after the
slash (/) is the length of the prefix, which is also indicated by the underline (_)
under the IPv6 address. If no address is acquired, the field displays Not Available.
•Router’s IPv6 Address on LAN. This field shows the IPv6 address that is acquired
for the access point/router’s LAN interface. The number after the slash (/) is the
length of the prefix, which is also indicated by the underline (_) under the IPv6
address. If no address is acquired, the field displays Not Available.
7. In the LAN Setup section, 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 access point/router assigns IPv6 addresses to the
devices on your home network (the LAN).
