How do I configure the IPv6 function on a HUAWEI router
The IPv6 function needs to be supported by the local carrier and is subject to other network servers. To ensure optimal Internet access, exercise caution when enabling the IPv6 function on the router. If your Internet experience deteriorates after IPv6 is enabled, disable IPv6 and try again. For more information, contact your local carrier.
To enable the IPv6 function on a router, perform the following operations:
If you are configuring IPv6 for the first time, the Internet access wizard page will be displayed. You can follow the wizard to enable IPv6 in Network configuration .
Method 1: Using the HUAWEI AI Life App
- Connect your phone to your router's Wi-Fi, open the AI Life app on your phone.
- On the AI Life app, touch the corresponding router to access the router management screen.
- Go to Show more > Network settings > IPv6 .
- Touch the IPv6 switch to enable or disable the feature
Method 2: Using the web-based management page
- Connect your phone or computer to the router's Wi-Fi (or to the router's any port using an Ethernet cable). In the address box of a browser, enter the default IP address to log in to the web-based management page of the router. (For the default IP address, see the nameplate on the bottom of the router.)
- Go to More Functions > Network Settings > IPv6 .
- Click the IPv6 switch to enable or disable the feature.
If your router does not support IPv6, update it to the latest version. Currently, IPv6 is only available on the router being configured, but not available on cascaded routers.
After enabling the IPv6 function of the router, you can go to More Functions > About Router to check whether there is an IPv6 address delivered by the local carrier. If a long time has passed and the IPv6 address cannot be obtained, contact the local carrier.

Router Setup Guide (IPv6)
The first step is the same for both Static and Dynamic IP address configurations: change your router’s DNS servers to SafeDNS addresses - 2001:67c:2778::3939 and 2001:67c:2778::3940
Go to the router’s settings page, click the " Advanced " tab, and choose IPv6 in the left menu. Choose " IPv6 setup " and type in SafeDNS IPv6 addresses.
Router with static IP address configuration
Go to SafeDNS Dashboard > Settings > Devices and copy your IPv6 address to the " IP addresses / DynDNS " box, choose a policy, and click " Add ".
We recommend to add the whole IPv6 router subnet - first 4 segments with /64 at the end. Example: 2600:1005:b062:61e4::/64 instead of 2600:1005:b062:61e4:1111:2222:3333:4444 .
You have successfully configured your router.
!Please note that settings take 5-7 minutes to apply. !Stats and filtering status update hourly.
Router with Dynamic IP address configuration
In case you have a Dynamic IP address, you need to configure the DynDNS/DDNS on the router using a third-party Dynamic DNS service.
1. In the router setting, go to DynDNS/DDNS settings .
2. Check the DynDNS service available for your router. If available, we recommend using the No-IP DynDNS service provider.
3. Go to the website noip.com and sign up.
4. In your No-IP account, create a hostname (any name you can think of).
5. Choose the IPv6 type and create the hostname. Make sure that the " IPv6 Address " field is containing your IPv6 address:
6. Go back to your router and configure DDNS/DynDNS
- Select No-IP as " Service provider ".
- Type in the created hostname in the " Hostname " field.
- Type in your No-IP account credentials as "Username" and "Password", and click "Save".
7. Go to SafeDNS Dashboard -> Settings -> Devices and copy your DynDNS hostname to the " IP addresses / DynDNS " box, choose a policy, and click " Add ".
Once added, you will see it in the DynDNS section of the Dashboard.
Configuring the filter using the DDclient
In rare cases when your router does not have a DynDNS/DDNS setting and your IP is Dynamic, you need to use third-party software - DDclient - on the PC connected to the network:
- Set up DNS servers in your router:
2. Install DDclient on a PC connected to the network. Once DDclient is installed, all devices connected to the same network will be filtered by the same rules.

The first step in configuring IPv6 on a network is configuring IPv6 on a router. Router configuration involves a number of discrete tasks, which are described in this section. You might perform some or all of the tasks, depending on your site requirements.
Perform the next tasks in the following table in order that is shown to configure the IPv6 network. The table includes a description of what each task accomplishes and the section in the current documentation where the specific steps to perform the task are detailed.
This procedure assumes that all interfaces of the router were configured for IPv6 during Oracle Solaris installation.
The Primary Administrator role includes the Primary Administrator profile. To create the role and assign the role to a user, see Chapter 2, Working With the Solaris Management Console (Tasks), in System Administration Guide: Basic Administration .
Check the output to ensure that the interfaces that you wanted to configure for IPv6 are now plumbed with link-local addresses. The following sample command output of ifconfig -a shows the IPv4 and IPv6 addresses that were configured for the router's interfaces.
The output also shows that the primary network interface dmfe0 and the additional interface dmfe1 were configured during installation with the IPv6 link–local addresses fe80::203:baff:fe11:b115/10 and fe80::203:baff:fe11:b116/10 .
For Solaris 10 11/03 and earlier releases, use the following command:
Use either of the following to enable packet forwarding:
Use the routeadm command, as follows:
Use the following Service Management Facility (SMF) command, as follows:
The in.ripngd daemon handles IPv6 routing.
For Solaris 10 11/06 and earlier releases, start in.ripngd by typing the following command:
Turn on IPv6 routing in either of the following ways:
Use the routeadm command as follows:
Use SMF to enable IPv6 routing:
For syntax information on the routeadm command, see the routeadm (1M) man page.
You specify the site prefix to be advertised by the router and other configuration information in /etc/inet/ndpd.conf . This file is read by the in.ndpd daemon, which implements the IPv6 Neighbor Discovery protocol.
For a list of variables and allowable values, refer to ndpd.conf Configuration File and the ndpd.conf (4) man page.
This text tells the in.ndpd daemon to send out router advertisements over all interfaces of the router that are configured for IPv6.
The text should have the following format:
The following sample /etc/inet/ndpd.conf file configures the router to advertise the site prefix 2001:0db8:3c4d::/48 over the interfaces dmfe0 and dmfe1 .
The IPv6 router begins advertising on the local link any site prefix that is in the ndpd.conf file.
Example 7-3 ifconfig Output Showing IPv6 Interfaces
The following example shows output from the ifconfig -a command such as you would receive after you finish the Configuring an IPv6 Router procedure.
In this example, each interface that was configured for IPv6 now has two addresses. The entry with the name of the interface, such as dmfe0 , shows the link-local address for that interface. The entry with the form interface:n , such as dmfe0:1 , shows a global IPv6 address. This address includes the site prefix that you configured in the /etc/ndpd.conf file, in addition to the interface ID.
To configure any tunnels from the routers that you have identified in your IPv6 network topology, refer to Configuring Tunnels for IPv6 Support .
For information about configuring switches and hubs on your network, refer to the manufacturer's documentation.
To configure IPv6 hosts, refer to Modifying an IPv6 Interface Configuration for Hosts and Servers .
To improve IPv6 support on servers, refer to Administering IPv6-Enabled Interfaces on Servers .
For detailed information about IPv6 commands, files, and daemons, refer to Oracle Solaris IPv6 Implementation .

Any kernels version v2.6.0 or higher can support IPv6 .
There are a few packages which specifically deal with IPv6 items. Most of these are located in the net-misc category.
Confirming IPv6 status
If IPv6 is enabled, the loopback device should show an IPv6 address:
Obtaining an address and prefix.
dhcpcd can be used to obtain a single /128 address for the WAN interface, and a /64 prefix for the LAN interface:
IPv6 packet forwarding must be enabled in kernel before a system can function as a router, this can be done using sysctl :
To assign IPv6 addresses to clients, the IPv6 specification allows for both stateless and stateful IP assignment. Stateless assignment uses a process called Router Advertisement and allows clients to obtain an IP and a default route by simply bringing an interface up. It is called "stateless" because there is no record of IPs assigned and the host they are assigned to. Stateful assignment is handled by DHCPv6. It is "stateful" because the server keeps a state of the clients who have requested IPs and received them.
Stateless configuration is easily accomplished using the Router Advertisement Daemon, or radvd :
/etc/radvd.conf is used to configure radvd , and is not created by default. If the prefix is left empty, the prefix assigned to the interface will be used:
To have a stateful configuration, install and configure net-misc/dibbler .
Configure the dibbler client by editing /etc/dibbler/client.conf .
Now start the dibbler client, and configure it to start at boot:
To start radvd and start it on boot:
IPv6 and DNS
Just as DNS for IPv4 uses A records, DNS for IPv6 uses AAAA records. (This is because IPv4 is an address space of 2^32 while IPv6 is an address space of 2^128). For reverse DNS, the INT standard is deprecated but still widely supported. ARPA is the latest standard. Support for the ARPA format will be described here.
Recent versions of BIND include excellent IPv6 support. This section will assume at least minimal knowledge about the configuration and use of BIND. We will assume that bind is not running in a chroot. If this assumption is wrong, simply append the chroot prefix to most of the paths in the following section.
First add entries for both forward and reverse DNS zone files in /etc/bind/named.conf .
Now zone files and entries will need added for all hosts:
There are currently some third-party patches available to the net-dns/djbdns package that allow it to do IPv6 name serving. DJBDNS can be installed with these patches by emerging it with ipv6 in the USE variable.
After djbdns is installed, it can be setup by running tinydns-setup and answering a few questions about which IP addresses to bind to, where to install tinydns, etc.
Assuming tinydns has been installed into /var/tinydns , edit /var/tinydns/root/data . This file will contain all the data needed to get tinydns handling DNS for the IPv6 delegation.
Lines prefixed with a 6 will have both an AAAA and a PTR record created. Those prefixed with a 3 will only have an AAAA record created. Besides manually editing the data file, it is possible to use the scripts add-host6 and add-alias6 to add new entries. After changes are made to the data file, simply run make from /var/tinydns/root . This will create /var/tinydns/root/data.cfb , which tinydns will use as its source of information for DNS requests.
Clients behind this router should now be able to connect to the rest of the net via IPv6. If using radvd, configuring hosts should be as easy as bringing the interface up. (This is probably already done by the net.ethX init scripts).
Should this not work ensure that the IPv6 firewall is allowing ICMPv6 packets through:
Package is missing ipv6 support.
Packages will typically emerge with the ipv6 USE flag, but if IPv6 is not working on a specific program, checking that it is built with that is a good first step.
There are many excellent resources online pertaining to IPv6.

Configuring the IPv6 setup and 6rd Tunnel function of the Linksys E900
The Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is the new generation protocol to succeed Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4). IPv6 was created to address the shortage of IPv4 addresses available. It also adds many improvements to IPv4 in areas such as routing and network auto-configuration. The 6rd Tunnel allows your router to send IPv6 IP addresses over IPv4 networks. This article will guide you on how to configure the IPv6 setup and 6rd Tunnel function on the Linksys E900. Some images may vary depending on the version of your router. Before you begin:
- Make sure that you have the following information from your internet service provider (ISP):
- Prefix Length
- Border Relay
- IPv4 Address Mask Length
- Check if your router and system are IPv6 compliant.
1. Log in to your router's web browser. 2. You will land on Setup . Click on IPv6 Setup .
3. In the Internet Connection Type section, select Disabled for IPv6 - Automatic.
- IPv6 - Automatic – This is enabled by default. This allows you to use IPv6 automatically for all network addresses.
- DUID – This shows the IPv6 DHCP unique identifier.
4. In the Network Setup section, select your preferred 6rd Tunnel settings.
- Disabled – This setting disables the 6rd Tunnel function.
- Automatic Configuration – This setting allows the router to set up the settings automatically.
- Manual Configuration – This option allows you to change the settings manually. Make sure to enter the required information from your ISP if you select this setting.

HOWEVER, FOR A DISPUTE OF $2,500 OR LESS, YOU MAY CHOOSE WHETHER THE ARBITRATION IN ANY OF THE SIX REGIONAL VENUES PROCEEDS IN PERSON, BY TELEPHONE, OR BASED ONLY ON SUBMISSIONS.
HOW TO OPT OUT OF MANDATORY ARBITRATION . Notwithstanding the foregoing, you or Belkin may file a lawsuit in court rather than resolving the Dispute by arbitration if (a) the Dispute qualifies for small claims court (there are monetary limitations for small claims court), or (b) you opt out of these arbitration procedures within 30 days from the date that you accept this Agreement (the “Opt-Out Deadline”). In order to opt out of mandatory arbitration, you must (i) mail written notification to Belkin International, Inc., 12045 E. Waterfront Drive, Playa Vista, California, 90094, Attn: Chief Legal Officer, or (ii) email written notification to [email protected] . In either case, such written notification must include your name, address, and a clear statement that you do not wish to resolve disputes with Belkin through arbitration. Any opt-out request received after the Opt-Out Deadline will not be valid and you must pursue your Dispute in arbitration or, if the dispute qualifies, in small claims court.
If you are located outside of the United States, or if Section 17 does not apply to you or is otherwise unenforceable as adjudicated by a court of competent jurisdiction, then Section 18 applies to you:
18. GOVERNING LAW.
NON-EU RESIDENTS . The courts in some countries or jurisdictions will not apply California law to some types of disputes. If you are resident in one of those countries or jurisdictions, then where California law is excluded from applying, your country’s laws will apply to such disputes which are related to this Agreement. In all other circumstances, this Agreement will be governed by California law, without reference to its or any other jurisdiction’s conflict of laws principles. The courts in some countries or jurisdictions will not allow for dispute resolution by arbitration or waiver of classwide claims by you. If you are a resident of one of those countries or jurisdictions, any action arising out of or relating to this Agreement may be brought exclusively in the appropriate state or federal court in Los Angeles, California, and Belkin and you irrevocably consent to the jurisdiction of such courts and venue in Los Angeles, California. However, if you are a consumer and you live in a country where Belkin markets or distributes the Software, local law may require that certain consumer protection laws of your country of residence apply to some sections of this Agreement. In addition, Belkin may seek injunctive relief in any court having jurisdiction to protect its intellectual property rights. Each of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and the United Nations Convention on the Limitation Period in the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly excluded and will not apply to this Agreement.
EU RESIDENTS . If you are a natural person who resides in a country in the European Union, the laws of the member state in which you are a resident shall apply to this Agreement and any disputes potentially arising in connection thereto. The courts of the member state in which you reside shall have non-exclusive jurisdiction over any such dispute. Residents of countries in the European Union may also bring any such dispute before a local consumer dispute resolution body, if any such body is constituted under the laws of the country in which you reside. Otherwise if you are located in Europe and are not a natural person, the laws of the United Kingdom shall apply to all matters arising from or relating to this Agreement (without reference to its choice of law provisions) and all disputes related thereto are dealt exclusively by the competent courts of the United Kingdom.
