Sounds promising! Can test first thing tomorrow.
Can you confirm what was changed?
Wow what a hell of a difference that has made ! Everything is now flying with BT Whole Home WiFi and Superhub ..
Cheers guys !
You sir are a star 🙂

And thank you @smf22 for your help 🙂
Yes, just to confirm I'm up and running too. Pings are working, test-ipv6.com gives me a 9 out of 10, with only the known 'gap' around BT's DNS (which isn't a real problem at the moment).
Thanks for the fix!
Hi All. Thanks for checking that and posting back to confirm it has been fixed. I'm sorry but I can't tell you what the exact problem was.
As a matter of interest, what is that 'gap' about.
What problem could that cause?
Please keep it simple
The gap is that currently the BT DNS servers only have IPv4 address i.e., 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11. A full implementation would have the DNS servers themselves with an IPv4 and IPv6 address so clients could send queries to them on either IPv4 or IPv6.
This is not an issue as an IPv4 DNS server will, when asked, return the IPv4 and IPv6 of the site you're trying to connect to. For example, the following is a lookup of www.facebook.com to one of the BT DNS servers on its IPv4 address, but as you can see the response is both the IPv4 and IPv6 address.
C:\Users\smf22>nslookup www.facebook.com 18.104.22.168 Server: UnKnown Address: 22.214.171.124 Non-authoritative answer: Name: star-mini.c10r.facebook.com Addresses: 2a03:2880:f11a:83:face:b00c:0:25de 126.96.36.199 Aliases: www.facebook.com
Welcome to the forum.
I don't use one of those routers but you could have a look in the IPv6 configuration page(s) for something along these lines.
Auto Configuration Setting Stateless
Connect to DNS Server automatically Enable
Enable Router Advertisement Enable
What does the manual tell you to do?
Thank you for the reply. The manual says that the settings depend on what ISP requires, hence my question to BT.
The first choices on the IPv6 connection page relate to the connection type:
6in4 Static Tunnel
These are all available as a first step.
