Author Topic: Did this model drop the IPv6 capability that the DAP-2690 had?  (Read 6557 times)

Looking for someone who actually owns a DAP-2695 to look in the firmware menu and see if yours shows a menu entry called "IPv6" under Basic Settings, right under the "Wireless" and "LAN" it would be the third menu option there.
 
We are looking to upgrade to a faster WAP and noticed that in the DLink online user manual PDF for the DAP-2695 it does not show this option that the DAP-2690 has.

Thanks,

I'll see if I can get some information for you as well.

I ended up finding someone to chat with who has one of these.   Basically for others here's what I've learned.

DAP-2690 H/W Ver A1 - No IPv6 enablement option
DAP-2690 H/W Ver B1 - Has IPv6
DAP-2695 H/W Ver A2 - Has IPv6

So either the manual problem is a bug which should be corrected, or the DAP-2695 H/W Ver A1 does not have the support and there's no way to distinguish on the support website today so the A2 owners just get the same manual as A1 ones (you can only pick A or B revs of H/W).
 
I ended up buying the DAP-2695 today based on learning this and confirming the vendor had the A2 version.

Awesome, thanks for posting information about this.
I presume the Rev A1 was a initial release and may have not been slated for IPv6 support then they did with Rev B1 of the same model.
Some times there's just a generic user manual for all models, regardless of Rev version.  ::)

Hope it helps future users.

Enjoy.  ;)
