Netgear CG3000CR LAN -> IPv6 Setup page questions

Can someone explain what these settings do?  Especially "User Defined Prefix".  Or "Enable Unicast".

I presume Enable Rapid Commit is for DHCPv6
Enable EUI-64 Addressing turns on SLAAC?

The rest are fairly obvious.


I'm hoping this post wont be magically set to 'private' like my last one.

User Defined Prefix

Is the prefix Length is used to identify how many bits of a Global Unicast IPv6 Address are there in the network part.

Enable Unicast
The ipv6 unicast address is an identifier for a single interface, on a single node.

@Comcast_Zachary​ how many bits used where?  The LAN interface?  DHCPv6 pool?
I know what a unicast address is.  What does checking the box actually DO?
