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).

Status definition

  • none: No IPv6 support whatever
  • limited: somewhat works, mostly unusable
  • partial: mostly works
  • most: has most features, can be used productively, advanced features missing
  • full: works fully in IPv6 only networks

The list

What? Status
All Mikrotik RouterOS devices partial (see #Mikrotik-RouterOS)
All Mikrotik SwitchOS devices limited (see #Mikrotik-SwitchOS)
Arista 7050 / EOS 4.18 most (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
  • CAPSMAN: adding a capsman manually (directly with the IPv6 address) works


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

What does not work/is missing:

  • Accepting an IPv6 address from router advertisements
  • Upgrade in IPv6 only networks (it tries to connect via IPv4, even if there is DNS64/NAT64 present)
  • NAT64: no option in routeros
  • DNS64: there is no option for it in the DNS server
  • CAPSMAN: cannot discover 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

Edge Router X SFP, v2.0.3, 2019-06-01

  • No nat64
  • No dns64
  • No router advertisements (or fields for it)
  • No DHCPv6 server
  • address fields support both ipv4 and ipv6
  • by default does not accept address via SLAAC
  • Routing does not show IPv6 routes
  • Firewall does not allow to add IPv6 networks in the source field
  • Web interface is reachable by IPv6
