I am using a non BT router with BT infinity.
Is there a dummy's guide as to how I switch over to IPV6 on my router? It has various IPV6 configuration options within it, but I can't seem to locate a settings page for BT infinity?
Solved! Go to Solution.
IPV6 is currently disabled in the router, and the first problem is that to enable it you have to pick from a list of options like:
....and so on.
Then if you pick one of those options, there are various other configurations that become visible.
Someone told me that you should be able to just "switch on IPV6 and reboot your router" but I would need to know which of the options to pick.
Also, if I try this but BT has not yet switched on IPV6 support in my area (Warrington) will this be an issue? I assume I can just switch it back again if it doesn't work?
Finally, I read somewhere that PS4 consoles don't support IPV6. My step son has a PS4, so does that mean it will stop working when I enable this, or just means it will downgrade to IPV4 when communicating with the PS4?
Ipv4 and IPv6 co exist. Devices will use either. I don't know what the exact settings are called for the ASUS but effectively you want Native IPv6 DHCP /56 prefix delegated on the WAN side and auto configuration (either RADVD or SLAAC) on the LAN side. As far as I'm aware, BT have enabled IPv6 universally, so will be available to you.
I just got my Draytek 2860 working with IPv6 by simply enabling IPv6 on the physical connection but cruicially setting the
"internet access mode" to PPP (not DHCPv6 which I thought it might need)
after rebooting it then shows a Global 2A00: address
