Where is the iPv6 support of the Zyxel Multy X Mesh, as stated in the hardware specification? My test tells me that there is no support. My Amplifi and Netgear Orbi show me the iPv6 with all the data on each device.

    We will release a new firmware at the end of this month, it will support IPv6 enabled default.

    Can you try to reboot Multy X and use PC to connect Multy X via Ethernet cable or wireless connection. And open Command Prompt, input ipconfig to check the information of IP address.

    QoS is also listed as supported on the website but I don't see it in the app. Will that be included in the March update? Will it be for Device Priority or type of network traffic.. or both?

    @chip,
    Multy X is supported Wireless Multimedia Extensions (WME), also known as Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM). It provides basic Quality of service (QoS) features to IEEE 802.11 networks.

    Thank you. In the future, could you add a toggle in the advanced settings to turn that on/off? It might not be right for some networks. I usually kept WMM off with my prior Netgear router.

    Thanks for your feature request in Multy X regarding WMM On/Off setting.
    We will evaluate it. :)

    Multy X (FW: V2.00(ABKJ.1)C0) is supported ISP Parameters for Internet Access IPv4/IPv6: Dual Stack. And we will add IPv6 information in next version of APP.
    You can go to IPv6 test website to check it when your client device is connected to Multy X.

    Hi Ralle,
    Here are some questions wants to confirm with you.
    .May I know what is your network topology?
    .Is there a router connected before your Multy X?
    .Does your ISP provide IPv6 service? Do you check it?
    .How do you test IPv6?

    Hi, I have a fritzbox 6490 with real IPv6 Service. When testing IPv6, I only plug in my network cables. If I connect the Orbi or Amplifi, I get only 192.168.212.1 in DNS, but not for example,  fe:..... With the ZyXEL Multy I see nothing and the websites for testing do say „Not IPv6 support“.
