I have bought E1500 router as it supports the IPv6, but have problems with setting this on the network.
I am connected to my network provider with Ethernet cable. Provider told me the IPv6 range and IPv6 gateway address. I would like to configure this in the router, but I am not able to do. Provider does not advertise this configuration through the wire so the router is the only option, but unable to do that.
Do you have any hints how to solve this issue? Thanks a lot.

The Internet Protocol version 6 or IPv6 is the new generation protocol to succeed the current Protocol version, Internet Protocol version 4 or IPv4.
IPv6 was created to address the concern about the shortage of Ipv4 addresses available. It also adds many improvements to IPv4 in areas such as routing and network auto-configuration. It is said that the IPv6 is expected to replace the IPv4 that is why some Linksys devices already support IPv6.
Here is the link for configuring the router for IP v6: http://www6.nohold.net/Cisco2/ukp.aspx?vw=1&docid=

What Corleone wrote is correct, but not working on E1500. E1500 currently has only the Automatic option, without possibility to manually configure the IPv6 addresses.
I am wonrdering where to contact Cisco and to ask if they are planning to implement the Manual Configuration option as well...

If there is an option for Automatic then there should be an option for Manual settings as well. If you are not getting that option then try to try to upgrade the firmware of the router and then reset/reconfigure the router once again.. After this process check the IP v6 manual status...

Router is updated to the latest official firmware available (v1.0.04 (Build 2) from 2012-03-28). And there is only Automatic option. I also called to the Cisco support and they told me "…they are currently not planning to release a new firmware version, but can be in future…".
So… does anyone know, what the "IPv6 Automatic" option does? How it works? Thanks a lot.
