    Spectrum/TimeWarner Router IPv6 Settings

    I have an Arris SB6183 and a Asus RT-AC68P router running Shibby Tomato version 140 K26ARM USB AIO-64K. I know that IPv6 is available (Fullerton, California) in my area and I would like to setup to run it but I am not sure what setting in the router I should use. Here are the settings, can anyone tell me which one to use and any additional settings I may have to make?

    Native IPv6 from ISP

    DHCPv6 with Prefix Delegation

    6to4Anycast Relay

    6in4 Static Tunnel

    6rd Relay

    6rd from DHCPv4 (Option212)

    Other (Manual Configuration)



    Thanks

    The router itself should probably use one of the first two settings, my guess is DHCPv6 with Prefix Delegation (prefix length: 56 or 64, IPv6 address delegation type: SLAAC).

    You may have to reboot the modem and router and check.

    Thanks, looks like it is DHCPv6 with Prefix Delegation (I used 64), there are only three other options one for Request PD Only (box is currently unchecked) and Accept RA from: with a box for WAN and one for LAN. WAN box is checked LAN box is not. Three blank boxes for DHCP servers and I am using 2001:470:20::2, 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844
    No setting for SLAAC.

    PD (Prefix Delegation) works as follows:
    A "delegating" server/router from your ISP sends out (delegates) prefixes to your client router. Your client router is then responsible for those prefixes, and their allocation in the local network. It can be performed with SLAAC or DHCPv6.

    Request PD Only most likely offloads those assignments to your router, rather than the ISP's delegating server.

    "Accept RA from" refers to how your clients send out "Router Advertisement" messages when they connect to the network.

    Thanks, all seems to be working, have IPv6 address for my router and all attached devices. Leaving Request PD Only unchecked and only checking Accept RA from WAN, leaving LAN unchecked.

    Thank you and hope this will help others.
