Re: [IPv6] IPv6 not implemented in my area yet?

Change your IPV6 internet connection type to 6to4 tunnel.

Internet connection type "6to4 tunnel" doesn't appear to be an option ... or am I looking in the wrong place in the Linksys E4200v2 setup pages?

I don't have a Linksys, but you appear to be in Basic Setup in the sub menu. You probably need to be in IPV6 Setup (one sub menu to the right).

Ok, thanks for your help!
I've found the area I *think* I need to fill out ... but I have no clue what needs to be in the fields.

I think you need to change IPv6 Automatic to Enabled.

Yeah ... that's what it was set on originally when I first posted and the resulting attached image.

If IPv6 via DHCP6 is not enabled in you area yet, then setting this to Automatic will not work until it is enabled for your area. No harm in leaving it set this way for now - someday it will just start working.

But if you do want IPv6 now, and then it will have to be either 6to4 with Comcast, if you can get configured that way and that is enabled in your area, or via a third party tunnel broker if you can configure for that.

Ahhh ... I'm suspecting that is the problem, hence the original subject for my post. I live in a small rural area and we normally get new Comcast speed, firmware etc on the tail-end of implementation.

Thanks for your comments, but it's not so important right now to me to go that route ... I'll just wait for Comcast.

However, if any Comcast CSR reading this can confirm my suspicions that IPv6 is not currently implemented in my area, I would appreciate it.

Don't feel left out. I am in a major metro area and IPv6 via DHCPv6 is not here yet either.

I can get 6to4 to work though. And I have used a tunnel broker in the past, before I moved to Comcast.
