Tunnel on G3100 Verizon Router
« on: May 06, 2022, 01:54:13 PM »

Hi all,

I have having trouble getting the tunnel setup using my new router.

I have Verizon Fios as my ISP. I have been using the same account since 2009. However, since getting a new Verizon router (The G3100), I have not been able to get the tunnel working. I setup my computer as the DMZ and set the firewall to low (I did not see a disable). In the previous WiFi router, there was a process to setup protocol 41 forwarding, but I did not see an option in this one.

Has anyone had experience with this router?

Also, is there any sort of Protocol 41 "ping" tool to check if traffic is passing through in the first place?

You'd have to use something like Wireshark to look at packets

You probably have to revert back to your old router. Only very few devices actually support forwarding of port 41, especially if it's some kind of SoHo cable-modem-router-combination.

But I heard FIOS is rolling out native IPv6, with some regions/states (afaik MD among others) already upgraded.
