IPv6 not connecting

IPv6 not connecting

Region : Australia

Model : TD-W8980

Hardware Version : V1

Firmware Version : TD-W8980_V1_130304

ISP : Internode


The modem is connected via IPv4 but I can't get the IPv6 to work with my ISP (Internode Australia). I bought the modem believing IPv6 was supported (it says "IPv6 ready" on the box).

My previous modem was a Billion and both the IPv4 and IPv6 connection would connect automatically.
I have enabled IPv4 and IPv6 in the TD-W8980 but only the IPv4 is connected and IPv6 remains in the connecting state.

I have read elsewhere that this is because the TD-W8980 doesn't support "DHCPv6 prefix delegation".

Can anyone help me setting up the modem for IPv6 with Internode or know of a work around for this issue?

I've attached images showing my ISP information and the status page of the TD-W8980.

Yep, I find that TD-w8980 does not support "DHCPv6 prefix delegation" as of now after searching the information online. And someone also says that TP-LINK will add it to TD-W8980 by updating the firmware. So maybe we can keep a close eye on TP-LINK website.
