IPv6 Hardware Compatibility List


This is a community maintained list, please add your own experiences / gear as well.

To edit, create an account on (now also available via IPv4).

The list

  • Statuses
    • none: No IPv6 support whatever
    • limited: somewhat works, mostly unusable
    • partial: mostly works
    • almost: has most features, can be used productively, advanced features missing
    • full: works fully in IPv6 only networks
What? Status
All Mikrotik RouterOS devices partial (see #Mikrotik-RouterOS)
All Mikrotik SwitchOS devices limited (see #Mikrotik-SwitchOS)
Arista 7050 / EOS 4.18 almost (see #Arista EOS)
Ubiquiti HD AP AC Pro partial (see #Ubiquiti)

Mikrotik RouterOS

As of/until RouterOS 6.44.3, devices can assign themselves IPv6, can route IPv6, but devices cannot be updated in IPv6 only networks (not even with DNS64/NAT64 in place).

What works:

  • DNS resolution via IPv6


  • DNS is in the "IP" menu, IPv6 DNS works there, too

What does not work/is missing:

  • Upgrade via IPv6 only
  • NAT64
  • DNS64
  • CAPSMAN: cannot find the capsman via ipv6 address

Mikrotik SwitchOS

  • Management IP cannot be IPv6
  • No IPv6 updates

Highly disrecommended, as they cannot be managed in IPv6 only networks, not even after manual configuration.

Arista EOS

As of EOS 4.18.6 EOS mostly works with IPv6. In Arista 7050 with 4.18.6 there is are no NAT64 capabilties.


The HD AP AC Pro was tested on 2019-05-01 and the result was as follows:

  • The mobile phone app only works with IPv4 (discovery, basic config)
  • The AP accepts IPv6 from the network via router advertisements
  • The AP does not have rdnssd installed, so there are no DNS servers on the AP itself
  • It seems the AP stops broadcasting its SSID after some time without IPv4
