    IPv6 Settings

    I am trying to setup IPv6 on my RT-N66U running Shibby Tomato Firmware 1.28.0000 MIPSR2-140 K26 USB AIO-64K. From my ISP I get Delegated Prefix and IPv6 Gateway Address but my routers firmware only has a box to fill in Assigned / Routed Prefix in the Native IPv6 from ISP Service Type and only boxes for DNS servers in the DHCP with Prefix Delegation Service Type. I am in Brazil and using .Net cable as a provider and they don't seem to be able to give me any help so it has become trial and error on my side. I am sure one of the ISP Service types works but which one. Having said that I have tried the Native IPv6 from ISP and filled in the DNS servers but that has not worked so it leaves me with Native IPv6 from ISP but I don't know what to but in the Assigned / Routed Prefix box. Is it the Delegated Prefix address I get from the ISP or the IPv6 Gateway address?
    The reason I am able to see the Delegated Prefix and IPv6 Gateway Address is because I have their Modem/Router/Wi-Fi/Telephone device setup in Bridge mode but prior to setting to Bridge I viewed all of the settings and wrote them down then switched to Bridge mode.
    Can anyone tell me which of the two I can use to get my IPv6 working?

    I would use the Delegated Prefix address you got from your ISP as the "Assigned/Routed Prefix".

    Some ISPs have buggy IPv6 implementations initially, especially if they don't know how to advise you to set it up.
    Linux is user friendly, it's just picky about its friends...

    No real need to use IP6 yet.
    No one has any right to force data on you
    and command you to believe it or else.
    If it is not true for you, it isn't true.
