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).
3. Click the Login button.
The NETGEAR Account Login page displays.
4. Enter your registered email address and password and click the LOG IN button.
The BASIC Home page displays.
5. Select ADVANCED > Advanced Setup > IPv6.
The IPv6 page displays.
6. From the Internet Connection Type menu, select PPPoE.
The page adjusts. The access point/router automatically detects the information in
the following fields:
•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. Specify the PPPoE settings for IPv6:
•Login. Enter the login name that your ISP gave you.
•Password. Enter the password for the ISP connection.
•Service Name (If Required). Enter a service name. If your ISP did not provide a
service name, leave this field blank.
Note: The default setting of the Connection Mode menu is Always On to provide
a steady IPv6 connection. The access point/router never terminates the connection.
If the connection is terminated, for example, when the modem is turned off, the
access point/router attempts to reestablish the connection immediately after the
PPPoE connection becomes available again.
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.
