Hello all,

I am setting up a pfSense router and about to demote my Netgear R7000 running DD-WRT KONG r23900M to just an Access Point. I also plan on adding IPv6 to my whole small biz network.

Can I just convert the Netgear into an AP or do I have to do more to it to enable/allow IPv6 for WiFi devices?

PS - I did search and Google and did not find answers so if this has been discussed or answered, etc. please just point me to the link.

Thanks in advance!

An AP is only bridging the clients, so it's does not handle ip. If you are going to administrate it over ipv6, you have to give it an ipvg address.

OK. Thanks. I thought it was going to be that simple but needed to be sure.
