IPv6 address available but no connection

Hi All,

 

I have just got a new router and I am having this exact same issue as described in the first post of this thread. Only difference is I am nowhere near Bracknell!

 

Mods - could this still be affecting other people? I'm having to disable IPV6 to make my connection usable otherwise clients show long timeouts. From my router:-

 

IPv6 Connection Type: Native with DHCP-PD
WAN IPv6 Address:
WAN IPv6 Gateway: fe80::ea4:2ff:fee9:fd5b
LAN IPv6 Address: 2A00:23C4:C6ED:9500:6245:CBFF:FE17:A0C0/64
LAN IPv6 Link-Local Address: fe80::6245:cbff:fe17:a0c0/64
DHCP-PD: Enabled
LAN IPv6 Prefix: 2a00:23c4:c6ed:9500::/56
DNS Address:

 

Router is an Asus DSL-AC88

Perhaps you also need to enable PPPOE relay for your device(s) ?

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

PPoE relay is for using the device as a modem only and nothing to do with IPv6.

 

Any mods around? I'd like to get IPv6 working on my connection and the symptoms are exactly the same as the original posters...

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

Hi @markgb Sorry you are having problems trying to connect on IPV6. I've moved your post to create your own thread as the previous thread was solved and you are not in the Bracknell area.

 

We will be happy to look into this further for you if you send us your details. You can contact us by clicking on my user name and selecting contact the mods.

Thanks
John

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

ipv6 settings.pngOn the asus the configuration page for ipv6 should look like the above.

 

You'll know if its working or not because you will have ipv6 addresses in the areas I badly overwrote with white. It might be worth a reboot also if everything is configured the same as I've done here and you are still seeing on ipv6 addresses. If you see the ipv6 addresses here but its not working on your PC then the problem is likely on your PC. If you want to test ipv6 from your router and can access the CLI then try ping -6 www.google.com. You should get something like :-

 

ping -6 www.google.com
PING www.google.com (2a00:1450:400b:c00::68): 56 data bytes
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:400b:c00::68: seq=0 ttl=43 time=24.950 ms
64 bytes from 2a00:1450:400b:c00::68: seq=1 ttl=43 time=24.646 ms
^C
--- www.google.com ping statistics ---
2 packets transmitted, 2 packets received, 0% packet loss
round-trip min/avg/max = 24.646/24.798/24.950 ms

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

This is the settings page. There's no "56" in the LAN prefix box.

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

Straw grasping time.  Do you have the latest firmware?  It might be something not right in the firmware.  A re-flash and factory reset might sort things out.  Possibly even the factory reset.  You do seem to have been allocated a BT IPv6 prefix that your router has delegated to the LAN interface.  (the /64)

Might be off the mark but looks like a configuration problem and as your settings look good I'd suspect the firmware.

Re: IPv6 addresses given but no connection

I’d agree with Liam. Notice you firmware version number is a lot different to my own. Maybe newer code causing the problem. That dhcp message looks crucial. Might be worth trying to get hold of asus.
