Title: Can't get ipv6 tunnel through netgear (wpn824n) router, any suggestions?
Post by: cb1000HE on August 07, 2011, 06:33:26 PM
I've done everything by the book and still no connectivity.  Been trying for several days now.  Used local and private I.P.'s  and still nothing.  Any incite would be greatly appreciated.  :(

And have you forwarded protocol 41 to your private IP?  If you can not do that, have you tried putting your machine into the DMZ of your router?

You 100% sure you not behind a double nat?  What does your wpn824n connect too?  It has a PUBLIC ip on its wan interface?

I've tried using my private i.p as the dmz server, but no good. And no other I.P.'s were allowed on dmz server. And my router connects to my cable modem.
And how do i forward protocol 41 to my private ip?

OK, those commands look correct.  Like Johnpoz says, many routers won't let you do protcol forwarding, so you're left with putting your host in the DMZ of your router.  Unfortunately, this doesn't always work either.

Look for the DMZ settings on your router and add 192.168.1.25

Well your out of luck then, for the tunnel to work you need protocol 41.

If you placed your local tunnel box in the DMZ of your router and it did not work, then your going to need a different router that does support it.  Or get a different router that allows you to put the tunnel endpoint at the router.  Say anything running dd-wrt.

You sure your dmz was setup correctly - some routers only allow one physical lan port to be used for the DMZ.  I would have to look up the manual for that specific router.  As stated sometimes it works with DMZ, sometimes it doesn't -- what is best is a router that actually allows protocol forwarding, atleast for 41 which is required for the tunnel to work.  I run pfsense for example as my router, and it worked fine with the tunnel endpoint behind it.  But then I graduated to having the router actually be the endpoint of the tunnel which is a much better setup.

If you have a old pc around you could always run pfsense ;)

Or, put something like ddwrt on your router and terminate the connection there

I just did a lookup of your router wpn824n for dd-wrt support, and its not good news

"The router will never be supported by dd-wrt."

If you can not pass protocol 41 through your nat router, then no there is nothing you can do to get the HE tunnel up behind your nat router.  I would suggest you get router that supports it, or atleast works when IP put into the dmz.  you can pickup router that would work with dd-wrt for like $50, then just use your N router as Accesspoint so you can still have N wireless.  Good choice for dd-wrt support would be say the wrt54GL

Do u know of anyone usng "tomato" instead dd-wrt on the netgear wpn824n?

There is no mention of your router on their website

tomato has a VERY small number of supported devices - if your router is not supported by dd-wrt, I would not see how it would be supported by tomato.

So unless you were doing something wrong with your dmz, if your router does not support forwarding protocol 41 and does not support 3rd party firmware that would enable it to either forward 41 or even be the endpoint of the tunnel.

Your only option is to replace -- sorry.  But in my personal opinion why would you ever buy a router that does not support 3rd party in the first place? ;)

I only use wireless soho router as accesspoints, I have my pfsense box for my actual gateway router -- and even I would never buy something that I could not put 3rd party firmware on.. You never know what you might want/need to do with that device.  Getting a device that is locked to to the crap feature sets that are native firmware is not a very good choice in hardware purchase if you ask me.
