DHCPv6 Configuration on RV180 and RV180W
This document explains how to configure the IPv6 WAN(Internet) for use with Automatic Configuration (DHCP) on the RV Series Routers. DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) is used with internet service providers (ISP's) who assign the user an IP address.
This article explains how to configure IPv6 WAN for the device.
Step 1. Using the Router Configuration Utility, choose Networking > IPv6 > IP Mode. The IP Mode page opens.
Step 2. Click IPv4 and IPv6 Dual-Stack.This enables the IPv6 characteristics on the router.
Step 3. Click Save to save the settings.
Step 4. Using the Router Configuration Utility, choose Networking > WAN > IPv6 WAN (Internet). The IPv6 WAN (internet) page opens.
Step 5. Click DHCPv6.This enables the IPv6 characteristics on the router.
Step 6. Choose one of the auto configurations from the address settings of DHCPv6:
Stateless — An ICMPv6 discover message will originate from the router and is used for auto-configuration, rather than the router contacting the DHCP server at the ISP to obtain a leased address.
Stateful — Connects to the ISP's DHCPv6 for a leased address.
