Model: AD7200
Hardware Version: V2
Firmware Version: shipped version

This is actually about the ARCHER VR900 v2!!! The above will not let me select the correct version.



[ MODEM / DSL ROUTER, Archer VR900 v2 ]

I am trying to get IPv6 working on an Archer VR900 using the WAN interface. It previously worked just fine on the DSL interface.

The settings for my internet provider (zen internet: are SLAAC, RADVD, delegated. This worked fine on DSL. When the router is plugged in from the WAN interface (for my new fibre connection) and I select SLAAC, RADVD, delegated, I get an IPv6 DNS but the gateway is blank and I also now have no IP as it obviously cannot delegate addresses from anything. I have confirmed that the ISPs radius server is working ok and have sucessfully got a Fritzbox 7530 router working in IPv6 with exactly the same settings as above.


So, I am convinced you have an IPv6 BUG in the firmware for the WAN interface.


Please note, I have of course selected the correct settings in the LAN interface as well as WAN.


I have used the routers interface to check for updated firmware, but it says there is none. I am running the same firmware it shipped with.


Thanks for your help,

Kevin McCaughey

Hi Kevin, 


there is a firmware released to try to solve this problem. Below is the download link:


How to update it:


After that, please check whether it works properly with IPV6.


Finger crossed.

Thanks for taking an interest in this.


I tried this firmware but it changes nothing - i still have the problem. I noticed that there is no change in the settings in this version, it seems the same as my old version?


SLAAC/RADVD/delegated is still not getting any Gateway address (so nothing else can work) and cannot delegate IP addresses. So I only have DNS, nothing else. It is bugged.
