That should solve the problem.

Currently, not many ISP is IPv6 ready & those internet wifi router with IPv6 option selected will have issues.

Btw, to access the settings mentioned above you first must open the your Airport Utility App from the "Utility" selection under the "Go" menu. Next click on the AirPort Extreme icon & select on "Edit" option. Below are summarised steps:
