Hello! My ISP is providing me acess to IPv6, but I dont know how to properly configure my Asus RT-N16 router to use IPv6. All the info I got from my ISP is this:

The following IPv6 -addresses are in use:
2001:700:300::/46

IPv6-nameservers are:
2001:700:300::200
2001:700:300::201

Anyone that can help?

first connect your computer directly to the internet to your modem to make sure that you are really getting IPv6 from your ISP. if using windows 7, going to network connection manager and opening up your connection should make it look like this.

second, IPv6 addresses beginning with 2001 are tunneled IPv6 addresses if i'm not mistaken(my 6in4 tunnel begins in 2001). what i'm guessing is your ISP is running 6rd and providing autoconfigured tunnels for their customers. if this is the case, look here: http://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/IPv6#6rd

third: if my second point is wrong, see if you can find out whether your ISP hands out IPv6 addresses using DHCPv6 or radvd. dd-wrt only supports radvd(DHCPv6 needs optware).

I don't have much experience with native IPv6 but have lots of it with tunneled.

When I connect directly to the network I get internett connection on both ipv6 and ipv4. Also these online test give me positive results.

But how am I suppose to know if its a tunneled adress, or a "true" ipv6 connection ?

Might be worth telling that my router is directed connected to a lan. I live in a appartment thats directly connected too campus lan.
