I have IPv6 working on my home network, Comcast (my ISP) supports connection type "DHCP-PD".  So when I connect to Yahoo, iGoogle, etc., an IPv6 connection is used.  Before iOS 6.1 when IPv6 worked for my wired connections, it worked for the iPad 3 as well.  Now, after updating to iOS 6.1, while IPv6 is working on my wired computers, it is not working on my iPad.  I rebooted my iPad to see if its network stack was hosed, but same results after reboot. Otherwise my iPad is fine.


Is anyone else experiencing this?  Are there any new settings for IPv6 on the iPad with iOS 6.1 that I'm missing?  Or is this a router problem?  I really could use some verification from others about this one.


Thanks very much.

iPad (3rd gen) Wi-Fi + Cellular (VZ), iOS 6.1

    Aha! I've been trying to get IPv6 working with my AE and 7.6.4 without success. I assume an upcoming FW update will resolve the problem. Thanks for posting.
