D-LINK: D-Link was added to the list during the last update in July 2010. In the meantime we received feedback from users regarding some of the listed functionality.

 

IPv6 Survey Matrix Values

The matrix below lists the features and various models of CPE on which we have information. The status fields can have five different values:

Unknown ( - ):

Neither the vendor nor the community can confirm the feature is present.  

No:

Vendor or testing confirms the feature is not supported.

Claimed by vendor:

The vendor has confirmed the feature is present. However, we haven’t heard any reports from the community confirming whether it actually works and we haven’t been able to test it ourselves. 

Broken:

Feedback from the community or test results indicate the feature is there but not working. 

Buggy:

Feedback from the community or test results indicate the feature is showing irregular behavior or is not working as expected.

Confirmed:

Based on community feedback and testing we can confirm the feature is there and working as expected.
