Router IPv6 Settings

I have an Arris SB6183 and a Asus RT-AC68P router running Shibby Tomato version 140 K26ARM USB AIO-64K. I know that IPv6 is available in my area and I would like to setup to run it but I am not sure what setting in the router I should use. Here are the settings, can anyone tell me which one to use and any additonal settings I may have to make?

Native IPv6 from ISP

DHCPv6 with Prefix Delegation

6to4Anycast Relay

6in4 Static Tunnel

6rd Relay

6rd from DHCPv4 (Option212)

Other (Manual Configuration)

 

Thanks

Re: Router IPv6 Settings

According to Spectrum's published list of approved modem devices, the Arris SB6183 modem does NOT support IPv6 operation.  Therefore it won't matter what settings you load into the router, you still will not have IPv6.

The SB6183 is on the approved list of modems and it does work with IPv6. Check the list again, here is the link I viewed you will need to add https://www prior to the address, they won't allow url postings...

My router settings are:

IPv6 Service Type: DHCPv6 with Prefix Delegation

Prefix Length: 64

Request PD Only (not checked)

Static DNS: 2001:470:20::2 - 2001:4860:4860::8888 - 2001:4860:4860::8844

Accept RA from: WAN (LAN left unchecked)

Provided that the 6183 got the latest f/w upgrade, IPv6 should now work.

But, it's slow and times out a lot
