Anyone have any luck with ipv6 on Orcon with an Amplfii HD system? I have enabled the ipv6 setting but getting a verify ipv6 error. Located in Wainuiomata, Wellington. ipv6 was previously working with 2Degrees.

I don't have an amplify but I do have IPv6 in Porirua on Orcon using a FritzBox.  The settings are slightly different to the 2degrees ones from memory. Are you able to post the screenshots of your current settings for IPv6?

The only ipv6 setting is set to on with the DHCPv6 setting rather than 6to4.

I think Orcon/Vocus are still in the process of rolling out IPv6. They've got an upgrade "soon" for Wellington to enable it.

Interesting, I wonder how I and others in my area, have v6 connections with Orcon. Possibly via Palmy? Which might explain why speedtest sometimes defaults to one of the palmy ISPs?

Orcon has had ipv6 for a while, its the slingshot brand which is only just catching up.

 

So if you are on Orcon, even on the Wellington BNG, you should have IPV6 - assuming your CPE actually works with IPV6 (many don't seem too)

Ah that's where I got confused - I knew it was one of the two.

 

If you drop down where it says DHCPv6 is there an option for SLAAC? I can't remember with the AmpliFi.

The only options I have on Amplifi are DHCPv6 or 6to4.
