IPv6 Configuration for NetComm NF2 Routers
This guide is suitable for NetComm NF2 routers.
What we'll cover:
- Logging onto your NetComm NF2
- Configuring IPv6 on your NetComm NF2
- Testing the IPv6 connection
Your NetComm NF2 should have IPv6 enabled by default. This guide is only required if IPv6 has been manually disabled during initial setup or via the configuration options.
- Make sure that your computer is connected to your router with an Ethernet cable or wireless connection.
- Open your preferred web browser, for example: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, or Mozilla Firefox.
- Enter the following number into the address bar and then hit Enter on your keyboard:
- 192.168.20.1 (this number is called an IP Address).

- The modem Log In page will open. You will be prompted for a username and password.
|This is the router's default username and password.
We recommend that you change the password for security reasons.
- Click OK to log in to the router.
- If a black background is displayed click the link on the bottom of the page: Switch to advanced view.
- Click Network Setup from the menu to the top of the screen.
