    Good morning,

    I'd like to know how to future proof my home network for an eventual support of IPv6 by my ISP. The network is as so:

    Router -> Airport Extreme (that ac model) -> two TC in bridge mode (when everything dies, going to consider mesh) -> iMacs, MBP, iPads, iPhones and one Win10.

    If I understand iOS correctly, there is nothing to do on that front.

    The apple devices have options like automatic or link local or I don't know what else. Which is why I am here: you are the gurus of this stuff and I am confident there is an easy setup that I can follow.

    Have a great day!

    Yes if you go into the control software ( Airpirt Utility) and change it to support IPv6!

    On the AE: Native vs Tunnel ? Enable IPv6 Connection sharing or no?

    Thanks

    My guess is native and yes to sharing. Tunneling is for sending IPv6 requests over an IPv4 tunnel. Of course, everything upstream must support IPv6, including your modem.
