Question about IPv6 and all-in-one Technicolor modem

Both of these settings are enabled in my Technicolor TC8717t:

 

Enable Stateful DHCPv6: Enabled
Enable Stateless DHCPv6: Enabled

 

I dont see an IPv6 address under WiFi in my iOS devices.

 

With those settings off, I see an IPv6 address under WiFi.

 

Should I have these settings enabled or disabled? 

 

Thank you.

Re: Question about IPv6 and all-in-one Technicolor modem

If you have an all in one with phone, leave the IPv6 disabled.... the mode where your devices just show an IPv4 addy.... It should be statefull OR stateless, not both enabled...

Turning on IPv6 will slow everything down as well as interfere with phone serviices/.

On the technicolor modem, some of those settings appear backwards as well... Which one is it?

Way over my head, MsRaye. Both are enabled. Which should I choose?

I just tried each one and no matter which one I choose, they both show IPv6 addresses in my devices? Maybe the setting to disable unavailable to me?

Going out of town. I just chose “Stateless” for now. Seems to be working fine. Will deal with it when I return.

MsRaye,

 

Technicolor has been bridged. Everything turned off. Have my own WiFi router now.

 

Is it necessary to turn on IPv6 in my WiFi router? Will it function properly? 

 

Thank you.

IPv6 being handled by router now. All is well. Thread marked as solved.

Re: Question about IPv6 and all-in-one Technicolor modem

As far as I've seen, the major issue was with TWC's poor routing of IPv4, IPv6 and EMTA phone in the same box.... They seemed to be improvements when either phone or IPv6 routing was removed.

Since the modem is now bridged and routing is external, it seems to have cleared up issues.

Maybe they'll correct this with the TC4400 1 gig tier, lol... but already bugs in them over at Comcast and here at Spectrum
