Netgear r7800 query


[link to this post]
 
Hi

Anyone know if a netgear r7800 behind an unlocked hg612 will work properly with BT's IPV6 settings etc?

Any issues to be aware of?

Thanks

This recent post suggests the answer may be no - though the linked thread on the Netgear forums refers to the D7800, not the R7800. DHCP-PD support is essential for IPv6 on BT's consumer services and on the majority of other ISPs using PPPoE.

I have no first-hand experience; maybe someone else can chime in with a more definitive answer.

It will work fine without any issues, as pretty much all high end standalone routers support ipv6. My Netgear R9000 (successor to R7800) supports ipv6.

Sadly it doesnt seem to work with BT's settings. I tried it today. It doesnt support native IPv6-PD as BT use. Netgear forums indicate they dont offer ipv6-pd. I tried the stock options but no joy. Seems to fail all the ipv6 tests.

Might try a pfsense box instead and us this as an AP.

In case its of interest I installed kong build of ddwrt and using dhcp with prefix under ipv6 the wan port obtained a valid ipv6 address. So far so good. Now scoring 9/10 on various ipv6 test sites. The outer box makes me laugh re ipv6 support... why netgear wont sort out the stock firmware to support ipv6-pd which effectively makes it impossible to use on bt infinity connections for ipv6 just makes no sense.

Will leave it running now and see if its stable.
