      Post IPv6 DHCP from my Sky Router?

      Does anyone know if it's possible for the Sky Router to provide DHCP for IPv6 addresses, or to support a local IPv6 network? I don't need an external internet IPv6 address, just a home IPv6 net to do some code testing with. The router is a Sagem.

      If you open a Command Prompt and type ipconfig /all you will get the IPv6 address and its DHCP information.

      Re: IPv6 DHCP from my Sky Router?

      Yes, I think I had not set up IPv6 on the local machine correctly. I needed to open up a CMD prompt and do...

      netsh interface ipv6 install

      This set up IPv6, and I now have IPv6 style addresses being reported by ipconfig.

      Case closed! Thanks very much for your help, top stuff.
