Not Enough Space For IPv6 Adress In Router Configuration


#1

Hello!
I can’t write the IPv6 address in my router settings. I can only write 15 characters (“2606:4700:4700:”). After that, it doesn’t let me to write more.
The IPv4 works good, but i want the IPv6 too.
What should I do?
Thank you.


#2

Oh and my router is D-Link VDSL (N 600)


#3

I don’t know that exact model, but it seems really strange that there are only 15 characters. Try sending a screenshot.


#4

If there are settings for IPv6 they would probably be in a different area. You can google to see if your router supports IPv6 and where they should be entered for that router type.


#5

15 characters is the max number of characters for an IPv4 address. As others said, your IPv6 setting is probably elsewhere.


#6

hey, thank you everyone.
look like my router needs a reset, because i cant go to the config now.
i will do it and let you know


#7

I cant find it. maybe you can find a guide (DLink N600, DSL6850U)

Do you see an IPv6 section like pictured here? https://support.opendns.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/115002928527-D-Link-DSL-6850U-VDSL-Router

It might require a firmware update (always uh… fun). You might also check to see if your ISP even provides you with an external IPv6 address http://whatismyipv6.com/ . If it doesn’t, having the IPv6 addresses probably won’t help/do anything.


#9

Yes, i see it like the picture.
How can I do firmware update?
On http://whatismyipv6.com/ it only shows my IPv4 address


#10

Ok if you see the IPv6 you probably don’t need the firmware update. In the DNS server section in the IPv6 is that the section you’re entering the DNS addresses in?


#11

That website’s IPv6 is down. :neutral_face:

* connect to 2001:4870:a24f:2::90 port 80 failed: No route to host

How about https://canhazip.com/?


#12

I’m entering it on “use following dns addresses” in the ipv6 section


#13

If it’s not just a UI issue where the characters are added, but can’t be seen I’m afraid you’d have to ask the vendor.
