7800N, IPv6 and the Zen Trial

Post by bsdnazz » Tue Sep 29, 2015 8:32 pm

Hi,

Has any one had any luck getting a 7800N working on the Zen IPv6 trial?

I've got some trial IP addresses, have enabled IPv6 on my 7800N (currently on firmware V 1.06e) but with no joy.

Any clues or pointers out there?

Have you enabled 'Ipv6 Autoconfig' as shown on the attached screen shot??

Yes, IPv6 autoconfig is set.

Nearly there!

Having run a shed load of netsh commands to disable various IPv6 tunnel interfaces I can get IPv6 working if I use stateful configuration. If I try and use stateless autoconfiguration Windows 7 goes not get an IPv6 address. I want to use stateless to I get fixed MAC address based IPv6 addresses.

Might it be worth upgrading my firmware to 1.06h?

Yes you can, I would suggest upgrading to 1.06h.dt2

On our Enta line, I normally setup IPv6 manually

Attached screen shots (other ISP's eg IDnet or Andrew & Arnold use the auto configuration, the later has been using the 7800N for some years now with IPv6)
