 Note that there is a "​WAN"​ and "​WAN6"​ interface. Each of the 2 WAN interfaces holds config data related to the upstream interface (WAN is for IPv4 and has "DHCP client",​ while WAN6 is for IPv6 has "​DHCPv6 client"​). On the other hand "​LAN"​ has both the config data for the downstream side for both IPv4 and IPv6 associated, so there is no need to have an extra LAN6 interface. Note that there is a "​WAN"​ and "​WAN6"​ interface.

On the other hand "​LAN"​ has both the config data for the downstream side for both IPv4 and IPv6 associated, so there is no need to have an extra LAN6 interface.
 Also note that both an interface and a zone called "​LAN"​ exist. Also "​WAN"​ is used both as a name for a zone and as a name for the IPv4 WAN interface. Both the "​WAN"​ and "​WAN6"​ interface belong to the "​WAN"​ zone (so furthermore there is no "​WAN6"​ zone) Also note that both an interface and a zone called "​LAN"​ exist.
