Hi,

The setup in my house is that the ONT and the Fritzbox 7390 are located in the garage at one end of the house, so for a much better wireless experience I have plugged in a Netgear N900 into one of the data ports located basically in the centre of the house.

After lots of googlling and finding conflicting results, I want to know how to set it up on my router and/or fritzbox 7390 to allow access to ipv6 webpages through my router.

This is what I get when I test ipv6 using the netgear N900:


This is what I get when I connect wirelessly to Fritzbox 7390:



Below is an image of the ipv6 settings on the netgear. I'm not sure which drop down option to choose but I do know that the 'Auto config' option doesn't seem to improve anything:


And below are the settings for my router on the Fritz:



Any help would be much appreciated! laughing

Hello... Our robot found some keywords in your post, so here is an automated reply with some important things to note regarding broadband speeds.

 



 

If you are posting regarding DSL speeds please check that

 



 

- you have reset your modem and router

 


 

- your PC (or other PCs in your LAN) is not downloading large files when you are testing

 

- you are not being throttled by your ISP due to going over the monthly cap

 


 

- your tests are always done on an ethernet connection to the router - do not use wireless for testing

 


 

- you read this topic and follow the instructions there.

 



 

Make sure you provide information for other users to help you. If you have not already done it, please EDIT your post and add this now:

 



 

- Your ISP and plan

 


 

- Type of connection (ADSL, ADSL2, VDSL)

 


 

- Your modem DSL stats (do not worry about posting Speedtest, we need sync rate, attenuation and noise margin)

 


 

- Your general location (or street)

 


 

- If you are rural or urban

 


 

- If you know your connection is to an exchange, cabinet or conklin

 


 

- If your connection is to a ULL or wholesale service

 


 

- If you have done an isolation test as per the link above

 



 

Most of the problems with speed are likely to be related to internal wiring issues. Read this discussion to find out more about this. Your ISP is not intentionally slowing you down today (unless you are on a managed plan). Also if this is the school holidays it's likely you will notice slower than usual speed due to more users online.

 



 

A master splitter is required for VDSL2 and in most cases will improve speeds on DSL connections. Regular disconnections can be a monitored alarm or a set top box trying to connect. If there's an alarm connected to your line even if you don't have an alarm contract it may still try to connect so it's worth checking.

 



 

I recommend you read these two blog posts:

 



 

- Is your premises phone wiring impacting your broadband performance? (very technical)

 


 

- Are you receiving a substandard ULL ADSL2+ connection from your ISP?

if all your N900 is doing is simply acting as a WAP simply connect to a LAN port on it and disable DHCP DNS etc so that the fritz handles all IP allocation etc.
