HH5 now has IPv6

Well, it looks like IPv6 is enabled on the home hub 5 now. Has anyone else got this yet? Oddly, my firmware hasn't updated with this change, it still says "4.7.5.1.83.8.204.1.11 Last updated 08/07/15".

 

However, I don't have actual IPv6 capability if http://test-ipv6.com/ is anything to go by, a score of 0/10! So I suppose it's only half working right now.

Re: HH5 now has IPv6

Sorry whilst the hub has some understanding of ipv6 you have a link local address thats basically just for local network communication. Until you get a global unicast prefix and address you are stuck firmly with ipv4.

Re: HH5 now has IPv6

Indeed, HH5 has had its link-local IPv6 address for half a year or so, and is using it for sending ICMPv6 Neighbor Advertisement and Solicitation messages at regular intervals to the local LAN. It also has five IPv6-related menus, but unpopulated and disabled "until supported by future services":

• Settings -> Port Forwarding -> Configure for IPv6 device
• Advanced Settings -> Broadband -> IPv6 Status
• Advanced Settings -> Home Network -> IPv6 Configuration
• Advanced Settings -> Home Network -> DHCP Table -> DHCP Table(IPv6)
• Advanced Settings -> Firewall -> IPv6 Pinholes

I wonder what the holdup is.
