My current network is as seen below (plenty of more wifi devices but you get the idea).

I am looking to get IPv6 setup such that devices on the DD-WRT router are able to access the Internet using an IPv6 address. When connected to the ZyXEL router I am able to browse using an IPv6 address however I am unable to figure out how to setup the DD-WRT router to also have IPv6 addressing. An added bonus would be to have the RaspberryPi that is acting as a NAS to be accessible via devices connected to the DD-WRT router. Thanks in advance!

  • In order for DD-WRT to dish out IPv6 addresses you will have to assign it a IPv6 address (that's just how DD-WRT) works. Of course this is based on the assumption your build of DD-WRT even supports IPv6 – Ramhound May 18 '17 at 3:23
  • The usual question: Is there a reason your ddwrt is even acting as a router in the first place? As opposed to a transparent bridge / WiFi access point. Also: what's the model of that Zyxel – grawity May 18 '17 at 4:06
  • The reason I am using the DD-WRT as a router is that there are actually a couple of other NAS on that router that I don't want accessible via the ZyXEL (rasp pi is running ftp publicly and NAS locally). – vivalldi May 18 '17 at 4:12
  • The ZyXEL is a PK5001z – vivalldi May 18 '17 at 4:12
