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)

Re: Router IPv6 Settings

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

But, it's slow and times out a lot

Hmm, worked in another location over a year ago with no delay or problems. Not sure about the firmware but I know it specs when I purchased it stated it was IPv6 compatable.

What modem would you suggest?

Re: Router IPv6 Settings

I have the same modem for two and one-half years. It is the best modem available unless you want higher than 300mbps down and more than 16/8 channels or unless your area is already DOCSIS 3.1. If you want to get a new modem be sure to get a DOCSIS 3.1. The best is also an Arris one - Arris Surfboard 8200. https://www. arris.com/surfboard/products/cable-modems/sb8200/

 

It is new and expensive so I am waiting for awhile as I feel 200/20 that I have had since October 2015 is good enough. Plus the 6183 will do 300 down if I want that as these latest speeds are brought to the neighbor Hawaiian islands. Maybe Black Friday 2018 will see a much lower price on the 8200.


Try Native IPv6 in your router. That works with my Linksy router.


The only problem I have with IPv6 is that there are no IPv6 DNS servers for legacy TWC. I have to use legacy TWC IPv4 DNS servers that can also resolve IPv6 addresses. I find this lame seeing that Charter is offering high speeds across its footprint this year and DOCSIS 3.1 but can't see fit to add IPv6 DNS servers yet?

I get 9 out 10 on the IPv6 test at http://test-ipv6.com. No IPv6 DNS servers is the one thing holding me back from a perfect score. Plus, I can't disable IPv4 (if I wanted to do that) because then I would not be able to use Charter DNS servers and being in Hawaii using Open DNS or Google, etc. servers instead makes the internet much slower. I use Spectrum Hawaii DNS servers only and those are IPv4 only.


Try this website: http://www. excathedra. . It should say IPv6 near the bottom.
