iPv6 router settings

I have a TP-Link Archer C59 AC1350.  In the user manual for my router, it says:

Your ISP provides information about one of the following IPv6 internet connection types:
PPPoE, Dynamic IP(SLAAC/DHCPv6), Static IP, 6to4 tunnel, Pass-Through (Bridge).

 

Xfinity is my ISP.  Where can I find the information?

Try this: Dynamic IP(SLAAC/DHCPv6)

Re: iPv6 router settings

Thanks.  I see that there are some other settings, which I am also unsure about.

"Prefix delegation" 

choices are "enable" or "disable."

 

A section titled "LAN."

Here are the choices there:

Assigned type:   "DHCPv6"   "SLAAC + Stateless DHCP"   "SLAAC + RDNSS"

Address prefix:                                /64

I assume LAN is for computers on my local network.

For the local network, I prefer not to have longer than necessary (or tougher to remember) IP addresses.

They do use PD (Prefix Delegation) so try enabling it.

 

You get what they assign (typically a /64). You used to be able to request a /60, but I'm not certain if that is possible anymore.
