In the past, customers not paying for a static IP were given a /48 IPv6 prefix, and those who were paying would get a /56. 2degrees is currently rolling out a config change which harmonises these configurations, giving everyone a /56.

 

 

 

I just got hit with this, my IPv6 breaking overnight. The fix was simply to change my requested prefix from /48 to /56. All hunky dory again!

For our dynamic subscribers we allocate a /48 or /56 address space depending on the version of code they are running (due to our currently upgrades in progress), for static customers we allocate a /56 address space. Upgrades are planned to be completed in the first week of November 2018 which will see us standardise on /56 for all subscribers.

Excellent exactly what the issue was

 

 

Thanks for the email 2degrees to let us know our config needed to be updated :S

 

 

for edgerouter lite (or can be done via the config gui which basically does this below)

 

 

delete interfaces ethernet eth0 vif 10 pppoe 0 dhcpv6-pd pd 0 prefix-length /48

 

set interfaces ethernet eth0 vif 10 pppoe 0 dhcpv6-pd pd 0 prefix-length /56

 

 

then a dhcp /renew on your device and you should be sorted again.

That would explain why my IPv6 dropped out a few times over the last few days - I'm static already on a /56.

 

Thanks for sharing! I do see it as a good thing that 2degrees are making both Static and Dynamic prefixes the same to avoid confusion.

Hiya,

 

We have 2 core devices left to be upgraded (One in Nelson, the other in Blenheim - it's been a journey) - so apart from those locations (depending on which device you're connected to as we have PE diversity), all Dynamic and static IP's should be /56.

 

This is one of the joys of moving away from 2degrees only supported/supplied devices (Fritzbox) and customers being able to supply their own. For most of the population this is a non-event, however I take the point re-notification. This would/could create confusion for most customers..... so there is a trade off.

 

Nick.

Fully agree. Also, many people won't understand what IPv6 is. I think posting on forums like Geekzone is a good way of communicating more technical changes out.

 

On another note! See you tomorrow!

Hiya,

 

"Also, many people won't understand what IPv6 is. I think posting on forums like Geekzone is a good way of communicating more technical changes out." - Agree, hence why that was the option I chose, the people who are likely to hit an issue from a residential perspective who aren't using a Fritzbox know about GZ and are most likely on here :-)

 

And yes, look forward to it!

 

Nick

Since these changes (could be coincidence) my IPv6 keeps dropping off after awhile, my prefix length is set correctly to /56, anything else I need to change (I have a stock standard Edgerouter setup)

Hiya,

 

Can't comment to your Edge router/configuration - Anyone else having issues as we haven't received any other related escalations?

Looks like there is a seperate thread with lots Edgerouter users experiencing the same issue ... https://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=66&topicid=242645 will try to log it now with the customer care team (was just avoiding the pain of trying to explain this to them)

Neither @michaelmurfy nor myself have the issue on our ER's, I assume we run off the same BNG in Wellington
