I've noticed that when I connect through my 8730, I do not receive an IPv6 address on the range advertised by my router.

This is particularly annoying on my laptops since I work with many ipv6 systems. However it is completely useless since this problem causes ALL my nexus android devices/tablets to immediately disconnect from the wifi.

If I disable ipv6 on my router, the android devices stay connected.

A quick browse around here seems to suggest this is a fault that is affecting numerous tp-link powerline adapters. IPv6 is no longer niche, this needs to get some technical attention.

Has anyone with a TP-link powerline adapter got IPv6 working reliably? More importantly, if it once did not work, did they provide a firmware fix? I've seen that the 8730 hasn't had an update in 8 months so I'm guessing this problem is never going to be fixed and is caused by a poor design choice? Dunno, but its pretty terrible to screw up support ipv6 in this day and age! (the device isn't even a router, it's just an AP)

Hi, I had the same problem and it is fixed by TP-LINK supporter,but my device is 8630. Maybe 8730 has the same bug. You can report this to TP-LINK support team and let them fix it.

How did you solve the problem? I have the same problem on the 8630.

Oh, I think I figured it out. I just tried and installed a beta firmware from this site.
I chose the "TL-WPA8630v1_170314.EU.beta.Entertain.zip" file because I have the "v1" hardware version (be careful!).
Then I went through the firmware upgrade process on the web administration panel, and now IPv6 works :)

Obviously I can't guarantee anything about this process, so if you decide to do this, this is at your risk!
