IPv6 Hardware Compatibility List

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

What is missing:

  • Upgrade via IPv6 only
  • NAT64
  • DNS64

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
