IPv6 config on D-link routers (DIR-878)

Hi,

Has anyone had any luck getting IPv6 working on a D-link router with a separate Openreach modem?

It has IPv6 connection options of Auto Detect, Static IPv6, Auto Config (SLAAC/DHCPv6), PPPoE, IPv6 in IPv4 tunnel, 6to4, 6rd and Local connectivity only

I've tried Auto Detect, Auto Config (SLAAC/DHCPv6) and PPPoE as looking most likely, but it never seems to connect.

Each of the options have other configurations as well, which makes life more complicated. SLAAC/DHCPv6 for instance has

Enable DHCP-PD, Enable Automatic IPv6 assignment, Enable Automatic DHCP-PD in LAN and Autoconfiguration type (SLAAC+RDNSS, SLAAC + stateless DHCP and stateful DHCPv6) for example

Re: IPv6 config on D-link routers (DIR-878)

All I can say is that on my Asus the settings are:-

Connection Type: Native

Interface: PPP

DHCP-PD : Enable

Auto Config Setting: Stateless

Connect to DNS Server automatically: Enable

Enable Router Advertisement: Enable

That may or may not help, but note that I think not all IPV6  routers are compatible with BT's implementation of it.

Yeah, trying to get as close to that as possible didn't work I'm afraid. Also trying to go through D-link support, but thought there may be someone that had got it working here.

If all else fails I may try dd-wrt, as that should have all the settings needed

Its possible that the D-Link doesn't support /56PD, not all routers do.
