IPv6 settings w/Netgear R7000 Router

Been having issues with correct settings for IPv6 and Netgear R7000. When I set to Auto Detect after about a week I lose IPv6 and when I do IPv6 test it only gives me 17 of 20 saying ICMP is Unreachable so I tried Auto Config and it's been working fine for a week now and my ICMP is reachable 19 of 20 also using Auto Config on the bottom settings. Just wondering what settings people are using for this router with comcast? Modem I am using is SB6183 and using Netgear firmware. Thanks

Re: IPv6 settings w/Netgear R7000 Router

Hello, I'm still having problems with my IPv6 disconnection about every 2 weeks with Netgear R7000 router. I settings I'm using now are:

Right Hand Drop Down: Auto Config

IPv6 Domain Name Server (DNS) Address : using Get automatically from ISP (No IPv6 server address filled)

LAN Set up: IP Address Assignment: using Auto Config

 

Tried Auto Detect also and still have problems with Losing IPv6

Any suggestions for setup would be greatly appreciated

Do you have the latest firmware update from the manufacturer ? I had the same problem when I had an R7000 and a firmware update fixed it

Is there still a "Native IPv6" setting available ? If so, have you tried using that ?

Does comcast not use the following for IPv6:

If your Internet connection does not use PPPoE, DHCP, or fixed, but is IPv6, select Auto Config. For more information about IPv6 Internet connection, see the following sections

 

Because I now selected "AUTO CONFIG" setting and it seems to be stable.

Well lost IPv6 again with Netgear R7000 router. Please someone help me with correct setup? Went back to Autodetect and now says DHCP and using Auto Config on the bottom. A few years ago I had X1 and tech put a Poe Filter on my cable incoming line I know its stupid but could the filter be causing the issue? I can't seem to get it to screw off. Thanks

Maybe you should ask your question in the Netgear forums ?
