Re: ipv6 on archer c7

Have a read through this thread https://community.bt.com/t5/Connected-Devices-Other/IPv6-on-Tp-Link-TD-W9980/td-p/1672827  IPv6 hasn't been fully implemented on TP Link devices.

Re: ipv6 on archer c7

It should be as simple as IPv6 Support -> IPv6 Setup and then:

 

WAN

- Check 'Enable IPv6'

- WAN Connection Type: PPPoEv6

- Username: anything@btbroadband.com

- Password: anything 

- Get IPv6 Address Way: Get IPv6 prefix delegation

 

LAN

- IPv6 Address Assign Type: SLAAC

 

The problem is that TP-Link are currently saying they don't support IPv6 with DHCPv6 'prefix delegation' using a prefix length of /56, which is how BT and most other UK SP operate. See message 65 of the very long thread IPv6 on Tp-Link TD-W9980.

 

Regards

Although the world has moved on a bit since message 65 on that thread - to the extent that we now know TP-Link are saying that they're working on new firmware to sort this out as a very high priority. I imagine they'll start with the most recent devices, though.

Re: ipv6 on archer c7

Are you checking on your PC if it has an IPv6 address? Did you disconnect and re-connect the WAN/line after making the changes?

Re: ipv6 on archer c7

I'm not familiar with the Archer C7 but the setup instructions in message 79 of the thread linked to above were those suggested by TP-Link for the VR2600, and they also work to give me native IPv6 on my VR600. Don't know if they'd be worth a try for you or if the C7 just handles IPv6 in a different way.

Re: ipv6 on archer c7

The settings that work on your VR600 were also working on my VR900 v2 when I first bought the router. I was getting 20/20 on the test sites. Sadly it's not working now and hasn't been for at least a year, no ipv6 address is detected. I've tried disabling/re-enabling ipv6 several times and re-starting etc with no success. I'm not sure where to go from here except to replace the router again.
