What are the full IPv6 addresses?


#1

Hi,
I am also trying to setup the IPV6 DNS server on a netgear R7000 nighthawk. The problem is that I have 8 fields separated by colons per DNS server in the router config. I only see 4 sets of numbers (5 if I leave the one between the double colons blank)?

How do I enter the numbers into those fields?
2606:4700:4700:: 1111 and 2606:4700:4700:: 1001

Thanks


Instructions page for Router has extra space in IPV6 addresses

Those double semicolons are a shorthand for all zeros, they would become:

2606:4700:4700:0:0:0:0:1111
2606:4700:4700:0:0:0:0:1001

PS: I would recommend creating a new topic next time, not replying to one that has a solution. thanks @andy

Thanks for the clarification. I guess I saw it as more of additional information to the reply, but I will start a new topic next time.
