Any stats @IPv6pipe can share with us on usage, top IPv6 destinations, etc from the beta?

 

On our network we're running at 68% IPv6, which is much higher that I expected.

I can't sanitise the graphs to remove commercially sensitive info, and still have them show any meaningful data so can't post them sorry. All is looking well on our end though from those users that do have v6 enabled.

 

68% is high. 👍

I have had to disable IPv6 on my main machine due to many issues in Google Chrome (such as the video I am trying to play and little else showing up on Youtube) and even things like Windows Update having connection issues. My other machine has no issues whatsoever so I am wondering if this machine isn't just getting a bit long in the tooth., Maybe one day I will be able to afford a new one :)

 

Basically it's not you, it's me :D

Any recent change for IPv6 at BigPipe end?

 

A site I run is IPv6 enabled, but just noticed Chrome is no longer using IPv6 to access it (it was a few days ago) and instead using IPv4.

My router seems to be having trouble getting an IPv6 Gateway address from Bigpipe, it's a ASUS RT-AC68U running ASUS Merlin firmware.
The router is getting an IPv6 address and a /60 LAN address range, devices on the LAN are receiving these IPv6 addresses.

 

Can someone confirm if my IPv6 configuration below is correct, was the default when I selected native IPv6

 

As below, the router is not getting a IPv6 gateway

Chrome will flip back and forth depending on which it can access faster. It's due to "Happy Eyeballs" It will prefer ipv6, but go with ipv4 if it's a faster response.

Nope, no changes on our end (the team that would do it aren't working over the long weekend) regarding v6.

Looks OK, yeah. If you go go http://test-ipv6.com/ what does it show?

Can you ping anything over v6? What happens if you change the interface from Ethernet to PPP?

I couldn't ping anything on IPv6.

 

Thanks, I changed the setting from Ethernet to PPP and that has solved it.

 

I'm now seeing a IPv6 Gateway and IPv6 tests show 10/10.

Similar issue here - IPv6 plays ball with PPPoE but doesn't work at all with IPoE. Had a bit of a fiddle, but unsure what the root cause is. Same router and firmware.

@IPv6pipe do you cater for people changing routers during the IPv6 trial?  I was using a TP-Link router since day 1 of the trial and it worked well.  Switched to an ERLite a couple of hours ago.

 

Went to testip.geekzone.co.nz and googled what is my IP and I get an ipv6 address.  Webpages load OK for the first 1 or 2 minutes, than stalled...

 

I ssh into the ERLite and if I do host www.geekzone.co.nz, sometimes it said it is an invalid host.

 

Then I reboot it a couple of times

 

Sometimes if I do

 

host www.geekzone.co.nz 2403:9800:c041:1000::a I may not get an answer

 

then if I do host www.geekzone.co.nz 203.96.123.1, I may get an answer

 

if I do a traceroute6 www.geekzone.co.nz or ipv6.google.com, it may not work

 

but if I do a traceroute6 with an the ipv6 address of those two sites, it works

 

and if I reboot it, do a traceroute6 www.geekzone.co.nz or ipv6.google.com, it may work!  =-P 

 

it is inconsistent

 

 

 

----->  by the way, there was a time I logged on the the GUI of ERLite, and the ipv6 address I got on the WAN side seems to be the same as the one I have on my TP-Link router.  Is the problem I experienced caused by the router on your side that it did not update the MAC address (or the IPv6 address derived from the MAC address) when I change my router?

 

Thanks!

If you swap the router you're using that's all good. Nothing changes on our side.

 

If the device terminating the PPP session requests the correct v6 connection info, our routers will reply with v6 info. It's up to your router and devices on how they deal with the info.

thanks!  I may try again tomorrow.  Back to my tp-link now and it is working well.
