IPv6 Configuration on the RV180 and RV180W
This article explains how to configure IPv6 on the RV180 and RV180W. Static routes are configured to direct packets to the destination network. A static route is a predetermined access path that a packet must travel to reach a specific host or network.
• RV180 • RV180W
Enable IPv6 Mode
Step 1. Log in to the Router Configuration Utility and choose Networking > IPv6 > IP Mode. The IP Mode page opens:
Step 2. Click IPv4 and IPv6 Dual-Stack radio button. This enables IPv6 Mode on the router.
Note: Router reboots after the above action.
Step 3. Click Save.
Static IPv6 is used when an ISP (Internet Service Provider) provides a user with a permanent (static) IP address.
Step 1. Use the Router Configuration Utility to choose Networking > IPv6 > Routing. The Routing page opens:
Step 2. Click Add to add an entry. The Add / Edit Static Route Configuration page opens:
Step 3. In the Route Name field, enter the name of the route for identification and management purposes.
Step 4. Check the Enable check box to activate the route. The default setting is that the route is inactive. The route must be enabled for this configuration.
Step 5. In the IPv6 Destination field, enter the IPv6 address of the destination host or network for this route.
Step 6. In the IPv6 Prefix Length field, enter the desired prefix length. The users in an IPv6 network are identified by the initial common bits of their IP address called the prefix. The number of common initial bits in the network's addresses is set by the prefix.
Step 7. In the Interface drop-down list choose the interface type for the IPv6 route.
• WAN (Internet) — The route is configured through the WAN interface.
• 6 to 4 Tunnel — The tunnel interface is used to route traffic from an IPv6 network to other IPv6 networks over an IPv4 network.
• LAN (Local Network) — The route is configured through the LAN interface.
Step 8. In the IPv6 Gateway field, enter the IP address of the gateway through which the destination host or network can be accessed.
Step 9. In the Metric field, enter the priority value of the route. This number should be between 2 and 15. If multiple routes to the same destination exist, the route with the lowest metric value is used.
