IPv6 address issues?

 

Last 2 weeks I have suddenly  encountered  problems with my broadband dropping out. This usually happens in the early hours of the day. Up to this point in time my setup was rock  solid, now when I have a drop out I need to reset the system.

 

My setup...Openreach modem which connects to an Apple  Extreme router.   When the fault appears, the lights on the BT modem remain green with my Apple Extreme telling me I have no IP address, please contact your service  provider. After a reset, all is well. 

 

I understand BT like other  IP companies are rolling out IP6V.

 

Question

 

Are BT rolling out IP6V and if so could this be the reason for my drop out?  

Is there an issue with IP6V.

Re: IPv6 address issues?

IPV 6 will be rolled out in late 2016 from the last information I have seen

there is no issue with IPV6 as it is used already by many other countries across the world

Thanks

 

If BT are rolling out IPV6 late 2016, are they testing? There are issues out there and certain  providers  are having problems. Examples of this can be seen on Apple's community pages.  

 

I keep an an open mind at present.
