This is related to my another post
however, I think this is a separate issue. Please forgive me is this is an OP.
Basically, I'm having my own ipv4 DHCP & DNS server for my LAN. But the Linksys router insists on inserting itself as IPv6 DNS server. This actually creates problems for me bacause Windows 10 (or maybe earlier) has preference to IPv6.
So I wonder if there's a way to completely disable the router from inserting itself as IPv6 DNS server?
Currently, I'm disabling Ipv6 from Windows client. Microsoft has several quick fixes for you to adjust IPv4 or IPv6 preference:
But I still think this should be disabled directly from the router.
Solved! Go to Solution.

>> Have you disabled IPv6 on the router?
Yes, I did disable ipv6. But the DNS entry is still there. Just to make sure, I follow the link below to diable ipv6:

Yes. I simply ise isc-dhcp-server without IPv6 capability. Afer play around the router settings I did find a better workaround. Instead of disabling the IPv6 on router, I now switch to "pass-through"
Now everything works fine. My guess is that Linksys router is too smart, so setting it to "pass-through" means don't mess around with IPv6, which solves the problem magically for now.
Will keep eyes on the corner cases to see if everything works as it is. Thx.
