Title: Hidden SSID and IPv6
Post by: bingo19 on December 02, 2018, 07:28:56 AM
I installed the system and have some questions about it.

The first question is the existence of a second hidden SSID on the 2.4 Ghz band,  on the same channel for each access point. What is it for ? Can I avoid it?

The second question is the setting of IPv6: COVR is connected to the ISP modem-router which provides IPv4 and IPv6 addresses. The DMZ is set to the fixed IP of the COVR.  In "auto configuration" mode, I can see the IPv6 address of the WAN on the COVR interface. But the LAN devices connected to COVR do not receive an IPv6 address (Chromebook, Android or Windows devices). Do I have to create fixed routes? My ISP refuses to answer knowing that it is not one of the products it sells

Thanks a lot

Internet Service Provider and Modem Configurations
It's possible that the ISP Modem needs to be in bridge mode.

How do you have the 1203 configured for IPv6? Auto or do you have any ULA or SLAAC set?
Try this:
"Powered off cable modem and A unit.  Left power off for 30 seconds and plugged in cable modem.  Let it fully boot up and powered on A unit.  After it was done rebooting, opened up the webui and it was getting an IPv6 address using the auto configuration(SLAAC\SHCPv6) setting."

Ensure your PCs are configured and have IPv6 enabled on there network adapters.
