Setting Up Belkin Router's Local Pass-Through Only IPv6 Connection

IPv6 refers to the next generation of Internet Protocol (IP) that uses a 128-bit address standard.  It is intended to supplement, and eventually replace the IPv4 protocol.  A few advantages of the IPv6 protocol include:

  • Better connectivity for mobile networks and streaming media
  • An easier setup for plug-and-play devices

  • Improved wireless security

In this article, you will learn how to set up a local pass-through only IPv6 connection on your Belkin router.  The following steps are for users whose Internet Service Provider (ISP) doesn't have IPv6 but want to use it locally.  This kind of setup provides local IPv6 connectivity between wired and wireless devices only.

 

Step 1:
On your computer, open any browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome or Safari®).

Step 2:
In the address bar, enter "192.168.2.1" and press [Enter] on your keyboard.  You will then be directed to the router's web-based setup page.
