8. Select an IPv6 Domain Name Server (DNS) Address radio button:
• Get Automatically from ISP. Your ISP uses DHCP to assign your DNS servers.
Your ISP automatically assigns these addresses.
• Use These DNS Servers. If you know that your ISP requires specific servers, select
this option. Enter the IP address of your ISP’s primary DNS server. If a secondary
DNS server address is available, enter it also.
9. 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).
10. (Optional) In the LAN Setup section, select the Use This Interface ID check box and
specify the interface ID to be used for the IPv6 address of the access point/router’s
If you do not specify an ID here, the access point/router generates one automatically
from its MAC address.
11. Click the Apply button.
Your settings are saved.
Router mode: 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 (also referred to as IPv6 rapid deployment) 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.
With a 6rd tunnel configuration, the access point/router follows the RFC5969 standard,
supporting two ways to establish a 6rd tunnel IPv6 WAN connection:
•Auto Detect mode. In IPv6 Auto Detect mode, when the access point/router receives
option 212 from the DHCPv4 option, autodetect selects the IPv6 as 6rd tunnel setting
(see Router mode: Use Auto Detect for an IPv6 Internet connection on page 47).
