So does anyone know a good modem/router combo that supports the very non standard BT 'Special' IPv6 dynamic /56 prefix ?
Feel free to rearrange these three sentences in order of conspiracy.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I gave you 21 minutes of my life and now I want a refund.
I asked Cortanna but she had a headache, so I asked Alexa only she was out doing her nails so finally I had to ask Google and she said this was far too nerdy and would I like to look at a picture of a cat.
So here we are:
And this is the future
..............and it has got knobs on.
My Asus DSL-AC68U works just fine with BT's implementation of IPv6 as would the Asus DSL-AC88U. My AC68U looks far less futuristic than the TP-Link in your post.
Hello Mr Curtiss and thank you.😁
Do they all do do 'ppoev6' ? I've been told that's a must to get the 'special' bt ipv6.
£300+ squids for native ipv6 is a lot to HAVE to spend.
Seems to me bt like it hot.
Normally I would say Boom Boom but your probably not old enough.
My kids would get the Boom Boom reference so I guess that makes me old enough 🙂
All I can say about the ppoev6 is that my AC68U quite happily gets an IPv6 /56 IP Address and at £130 is a sound investment.
If you were to go the UltraFast route which uses G.Fast then the AC88U at around £190 would be the option.
Mr Curtis - You've Cracked It - 😀
Tp Link are the Bees Knees for bt natives. I didn't know that.
Now I must mark your answer as the right one.
And 'cause you must be very old here's a picture to say thank you & cheer you up. It's a reminder of the old days:
We were all so happy. One big happy family. Bt wasn't around. Letters arrived the same day.
Plastic was good and children hadn't yet been invented.
Nope looking around some more I just decided I want this modem:
It's called Doreen does 75wpm makes coffee and doesn't ever get baud.
My kids don't post here.
Hi folks... I happened across this page whilst looking for info on how to hook up my home made firewall with BT's IPv6 service over UltraFast broadband.
There seems to be scant information about how to do it so I thought I'd contribute some info on how I configured my OpnSense firewall software on a small 8 port Kettop router.
Step1: Configure your WAN interface for PPPoE as normal
Step2: Enable DHCPv6 on the WAN interface
Step3: Enable IPv6 on the LAN
