Re: [Connectivity] Legacy IPv6 support

said by YukonHawk:

I have a DIR-655 which is going to be replaced in the near future. It's been rock solid since 2007, but it does not support IPv6. Thanks for any info.

Do you have the A revision, or the B revision? If you have the B revision of the DIR-655, there is a firmware upgrade that adds IPv6 support.

Hi guys....Since were on the topic of routers this one caught my eye INTELLINET 524988 WIRELESS 450 DUAL-BAND GIGABIT. I haven't found any reviews on it. It comes with a 3 year warranty which I thought was good. Has anyone come across or use routers from Intellinet? I checked Small Network Builder but it was not reviewed.

I've never heard of them, are they new to the market? After doing some seraching on it, it looks like a solid router with a good warranty. Like you though, I can't find any reviews on it.

Since this thread is about IPv6, did you find any information that said that this router supports IPv6?

I went to the manufacturer's web page for that router at »www.intellinet-network.com/en-US ··· t-router and I saw no mention of IPv6 support on the router's web page, or in the downloadable user guide. The overall specs don't look that bad, but I would be hesitant to purchase any router today that did not already fully support IPv6 (and I mean fully support IPv6, not just advertise that it is "IPv6 ready")

Man that brings me back memories. When I first heard the DIR-655 supported IPv6 I knew I wanted it, but then when I heard that it was only revision B I was like "damn now how am I gonna pull this off" because there really is no way of telling which version it is when ordering online or in retail stores until you open the box which they kind of frown upon lol.

Re: [IPv6] Legacy IPv6 support

Hi..Thanks for the insight into IPv6 and the interaction with the routers. If I had Rv. B on my DIR-655 I'd be in good shape. Next time I'll be a little more thorough and check the manufacturer's site for IPv6 support. I've narrowed my choices down to the Assus 66 or the Apple Extreme Gen 5 and both support IPv6. Small Net Builder has done some really detailed reviews. Some of what they do is over my head, but I'm a fast learner . Thanks again for everyone's suggestions and helps. This is a great forum with great people! Keep up the excellent work.

Glad we could help. In the past manufaturer's websites were not very clear as to which routers supported IPv6 and which did not, and to make it worse which revisions did and didn't. I made the mistake of ordering a DIR-655 off some website only to find that it was revision A and thus incompatble, so I had to return it. Thats when I went for the Cisco E4200 and it has worked amazingly well. I just upgraded to version 2 of that router because of the extra memory, faster processor, and faster 2.4GHz wireless and I can see the difference.

Anyway if you have any questions let us know, or if its off topic just PM me.

I guess it depends on what store you go to. The Staples in my town had no issues with me opening the box for the WNDR3700 I later bought to double-check that it was a version 2. They took off the security device, gave me scissors, and told me to have at it .

Yep, Staples here in Ukiah is pretty cool and laid back. I have to say the Best Buy down in Santa Rosa is too, at least in their wireless department. NOBODY beats Costco for customer service though, they are probably the best I've ever seen! Speaking of which, we're getting Costco in Ukiah, FINALLY! The STUPID city council though seems bent on denying the Walmart expansion, I swear the Ukiah City Council finds more ways to hold this County back, but that's another thread.

Yeah I trierd that once at both a BestBuy and at a Staples and I was met with frightened employees and a stern NO from managers. I just wish they would make it more clear on product lables what hardware revision things are, like next to the mac address or something, or to clearly name the version in the product name like the Linksys E4200v2

If that were done, the retailers would not be able to unload the old stock on unsuspecting victims customers.
