Does anyone know if the version 2 of the airport extreme can handle ip6?

 

If you change to the latest and greatest of the airport extreme do you have to re-program everything from scratch?

 

I have several dhcp reservations in my router now.  I would not like having to go through all of that again.

 

I have quite a few things on the router right now.  3 computers wireless, 3 ipads wireless, 3 printers wireless, a printer hooked up to the airport usb port, an ooma voip box ethernet, A home automation box ethernet,.

 

I want to add a network receiver and bluray player, most likely ethernet and am going to add a couple of raspberry pi's for alarm info and sprinkler watering most likely wireless.

 

Does the sheer number of things both wireless and wired slow the system down or are they only slowing things down when they are sending or receiving?

 

The printers don't get used much except for the one tied to the airport extreme and the raspberry pi's would not be sending much info whenever they are accessed.  Same with the automation box.  I know the ooma box can take a little bandwith but that is not wireless and mostly we seem to be using our cell phones more and more.

 

Thoughts on this?

 

Thanks

Peter

    All versions of the 802.11n AirPort Extreme base stations support basic IPv6 functions.

    Possibly, but that would depend on the version of the AirPort base station that you are replacing. With the latest version 6.x of the AirPort Utility it will take you through the steps to replace one AirPort with another including copying the settings from the base station to be replaced.

    Same answer as provided to the previous question.

     

    Does the sheer number of things both wireless and wired slow the system down or are they only slowing things down when they are sending or receiving?

    Only when they are actively sending or receiving data.
