IPv6 support

We are configuring routers with IPv4 addresses and would like to configure IPv6 address instead of IPv4 for some devices. Please suggest me the best way of doing it and things to be considered (IP validations & subnet Mask, etc) while doing this enhancement.

Software/Hardware used:
VB.Net, Visual Basic, ZyXEL routers

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Are these routers going to be supporting an IPv6 only network? If not then they will need IPv4 addresses as well.

Before you can IP them with IPv6 addresses you’ll need to do the same thing which was done at some point with your IPv4 network. Someone needs to define subnets, and decide how they will be deployed. You’ll also need to make sure that your devices support IPv6. Not all of them do.

    I have ensured that the devices support Ipv6. We have an online ordering system for routers - where the ISP can place orders for the routers along with their customer configurations such as username, pwd, IP address, subnet mask, DHCP, firewall, WAN IP, WLAN, NAT, MAC address, etc. We will receive those orders and configure the devices with the supplied config and ship them to their customers. We are already doing this with IPv4 address and now would like to do with IPv6 addresses as few of our ISP's cannot get any more IPv4 addresses. We have asked our suppliers to provide us with IPv6 compatible devices. I want to know what are the various things / points to consider while doing this upgrade to our provisioning system to IP devices with IPv6 address.

    These routers should support both IPv6 ad IPv4 network. Both combinations should work properly.
