Can I set up an IPv6 connection on my Predator Connect W6?
IPv6 (Internet Protocol Version 6) is a network layer protocol which allows communication and data transfers over the network. IPv6 was introduced in 1998 with the purpose to replace IPv4 protocol in the future.
IPv6 will not speed up your internet connection, but it is more beneficial than IPv4 because it offers better autoconfiguration and multicast routing, has more flexible options and extensions, built-in authentication and privacy support, and provides easier administration (no more DHCP).
If you want to set up an IPv6 connection on your Predator Connect W6 router, follow the instructions below.
How to set up an IPv6 connection on your Predator Connect W6
- Plug one end of the RJ-45 network cable into your DSL or cable modem and the other end into the Predator Connect W6's WAN port.
