Is there anyone that has IPv6 working on the FibreX Network? I got moved on to it a wee while ago and have been unable to get it to show up on either the supplied router, the Asus I was using nor the ERLite that I'm currently using.

 

Pretty sure it's all configured correctly across all three (I'm assuming - maybe incorrectly - no config for the VF supplied router).

 

This is in Wellington and I wasn't seeing it on my old 100/10 before the upgrade either.

IPv6 is not even live completely on their DSL/Fibre network.

 

 

 

There was a announcement made earlier in the month that it is all complete, turns out that was a little ahead of its time and is not active in all areas as of yet.

 

as @Linux has pointed out, HFC in particular is not enabled at all for it yet.

Ah I misunderstood a mention in another post where someone mentioned having it on a FibreX connection (or maybe it was Fibre, not confusing at all is it), my bad.

 

Thanks for the quick reply and sorry for the clutter!

This is Vodafones fault for branding the product "FribreX" which is highly confusing considering UFB is what we refer to as Fibre.

 

It is misleading, but unfortunately is not going to change any time soon. 

 

 

 

To vodafones credit, they have configured FibreX to act identically to UFB in terms of connectivity..
