I have recently gotten BT broadband and would like to use IPv6, but have yet figured out how to configure it.
In my BT Smart Hub Manager it says ;
Hub IPv6 status:
IPv6 network status:
I was wondering what needs to be done for it to be enabled?
nothing to do it will activate automatically when available
Mine is enabled but as the HH6 uses only BT DNS and this DNS (IPv6) is not enabled it does not really matter.
The IPv6 DNS may be enabled in your area, exciting eh!
Mine was automatically enabled when I set the hub up but (and it is a bit of a big but for internet use) - only some of the BT IP range appears to be IPv6 enabled in my area. Typically if I get an IPv6 enabled connection, I find overnight BT reboot my hub/connection a few days later and I will get an IPv6 disabled connection instead. Hopefully the remaining ranges will be enabled at some point in the near future as the need to move from IPv4 to IPv6 on the internet will get greater as the few remaining IPv4 addresses reduce.
Just set your network adaptor to use 2001:4860:4860::8888 and 2001:4860:4860::8844 (Google) as DNS servers for IPv6 rather than obtain via DHCP
