- Setting up the router’s IPv6 PPPoEv6 connection
Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the next generation Internet Protocol (IP) that uses a 128-bit standard. It is intended to supplement and eventually replace the Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) protocol. To learn more about IPv6, click here.
Point-to-Point Protocol over Ethernet (PPPoE) is primarily used to connect a DSL modem to the Internet. It is similar to the username and password used in IPv4 connections.
Before proceeding with the steps below, make sure that you know the PPPoE settings of your router. If you have lost or have forgotten the username and password contact your ISP.
Access the router's web-based setup page by opening a web browser such as Internet Explorer or Safari®. On the Address bar, enter your router's IP address then press [Enter].
NOTE: The default local IP address of Belkin routers is 192.168.2.1.
Click Login on the top banner.
Enter the credentials on the login field, then Click Submit.
NOTE: The password is blank by default unless you have set one.
Click Connection type under Internet WAN on the left menu.
Check if your PPPoE connection is already configured. If not, enter all details including the ISP username and password.
Click Connection settings under IPv6.
Select PPPoE over IPv6 from the drop down list.
Enter the Interface ID and DNS server address if you were given these information.
NOTE: Some ISPs won't provide these as they are assigned automatically. In that case, do not alter these fields.
Click Apply Changes to save the settings.
The router's IPv6 connection is now configured. The advantages of IPv6 are better connectivity for mobile networks and streaming media, easier set up for Plug and Play devices and better security.
