WNDR 4500 IPv6 Configuration Question

If my ISP, modem and router all support IPv6 should I use "auto config" or "6 to 4 tunnel" under the routers Admin settings? Or, is any of the other five options preferred? I have IPv6 gateway, server and local link address showing in the detailed properties of the LAN.
The IPv6 test passes 10 of 10 configurations, but for some reason attaches a comment "good for now, but will need some adjustments when IPv6 only goes into effect?"
Just want to be efficient as possible. My connection is working fine.

What are the options?

You will need DHCPv6-PD which might be included in "auto config." Although that could just be talking about SLAAC.

The best option is to post your IPv6 address here so we can determine if it's 6to4, teredo, or native.

Thanks, I really appreciate your time....Which one, local link address or the DNS server? Gateway is the same as the DNS server address.

That's a 6to4 address meaning you are using 6to4 tunneling. As Comcast has likely not rolled out native IPv6 to you, using 6to4 is recommended.

As to the scoring issue, you are likely not using IPv6 DNS servers (which is fine for 6to4).

Perfect! That is what I have it set on. I will look into the native.
