If you do not have IPv6 connectivity on any device without disabling it on the devices, it must be due to your router or your ISP.   Does your router have a Graphical User Interface? There y

Awesome news @captnconcrete

 

So now, what are the benefits of running only IPV6? I don't know a lot about IPV6, other than changing and adding to the way addresses work

my connection runs both ipv6 an ipv4 . for me theres not much of a benefit .. i notice but  i pay for it so i should be getting it. i learned alot about my connection trying to get it to work .lol

 

  • More Efficient Routing – IPv6 reduces the size of routing tables and makes routing more efficient and hierarchical. ...
  • More efficient packet processing – Compared with the IPv4, IPv6 contains no IP-level checksum, so the checksum does not need to be recalculated at every router hop.

Until it's fully implemented, which is taking about as long as 4K being fully implemented in TV viewing, we all are running both, or should be.

Your router should have an IP6 address if your provider says its not them, if it doesn't it is your provider.

 

Dont be fooled by gateway IPv6 though.

there is a address in  the ipconfig but . says tunnel adapter local area connection *11 media disconnected and no specific dns suffix .

 

tunnel adapter isatap.hitronhub.home media state disconnected

connection specific dns suffix  hitronhub.home 

 

this worked fine for a whole yr now its not . weird i say weird.

 

when i first set up this pc i did have to enter a 0.0.0.1 or 8.8.8.4 some shit like that but ill be damed if my dumbass can figure it out now. 

 

the local link ipv6 address is there and it starts with fe80: never felt so dumb in my life. on this . i used to have this down packed now im lost.lol

What i didnt understand,

if you talk about the not working IPv6 adress, 

do you mean your Lan Adresses behind your router and modem on the PCs or your public Wan IP from your provider?

The IPv6 address starting with fe80 is a default gateway or DNS address and not a proper IP address. fe80 is the IPv6 equivalent to 192.168 IPv4.

 

Run a cmd prompt and type ipconfig /all and you should see all IP's given to your network card along with primary and sec DNS servers etc, you will also prob see the ip beginning fe80 will be a gateway addy etc.

quick question here i did so much stuff last few days i am now qualified for it tech .lol more than i care to ever know about  it.lol

 

question is  i checked on 3 other laptops on my connection. all say ipv6 no internet access.  so this is no way my pcs settings.   what do i say to the provider when i call and they tell me all the shit i already did 200billion times. an they say its on my end. um  i am 100 % possitive its not on my end.   it didnt work for 2 months then one day magically  worked now its back to not working. there shutting off the ipv6 arent they???

 

so update  .. talked to sum dipshit. at midco .. they say nothing they can do too help .wow what a shocker there.

 

so i ran a ipv6 test. this is what i got. 

Test with IPv4 DNS record         
ok (0.047s) using ipv4
Test with IPv6 DNS record         
bad (0.027s)
Test with Dual Stack DNS record         
ok (0.085s) using ipv4
Test for Dual Stack DNS and large packet         
ok (0.083s) using ipv4
Test IPv6 large packet         
bad (0.087s)
Test if your ISP's DNS server uses IPv6         
ok (0.079s) using ipv4
Find IPv4 Service Provider

 

more digging on this . its a IP_HTTPS issue device access  there is some hotfix for it . but ill be dammed if i can find it with ipv6 down half of sites dont work.

Yeah as before mate i'm going with provider end, that testy tells you all you need to know, IPv6 aint working, move on with life lol.

 

IPv6 is constantly under testing with my own ISP (BT) so i lose IPv6 internet access as and when they decide to mess about.

 

I'm still not sure what it is you want from IPv6 that you cant get through IPv4? I mean i get its always nice to have everything working well but IPv6 doesn't give anything atm that you cant get just as easily on IPv6???

im a hypochondriac when it comes to everything working like its supposed too.  some site dont work when its off. i dont like this .  so to me ur saying yeah one tire is flat on ur car but u still have 3 keep driving. this shit worked flawless for a yr or better  . i watch my pc like a hawk.   now it works then dont work then works again.  if its possible to fix .. i want too.lol ur prolly right tho i need to give up ive done everything i can like a billion times. 

 

lady put me on hold came back said .. they actually have no way of shutting off ipv6 it works or it dont. lol why did that tech guy tell me engineers always messing with it . and for get tooturn it on .lol my buddy  who works for eros data center    https://www.usgs.gov/centers/eros

 

his works fine. hum?????? so i should just go buy w10 and upgrade . prolly fix it hu. i am very thankful for all ur help snuff im just very flustered right now. makes no dam sense.

Haha mate i totally understand, your talking to someone who took his PC apart last night cos a fan "sounded" like it was spinning wrong. 😄

 

As stated IPv6 although sometimes available is still under testing phases with most ISP's here in the UK so i'd assume most ISP's around the world would have something the same where its up and down like a yoyo.

 

When you say some sites don't work i'm surprised as sites should work on all protocol versions, they should at least be backwards compat so should work on IPv4 regardless. Maybe you've altered something that has caused them sites not to work correctly?

 

Prob i've always had with ISP's is i'm a network engineer so tend to need to speak to someone on my level, i don't want to talk to someone going off a script telling me to pull my socket apart to use the test socket or turn my router off etc, i've done all that before i rang. When i get through to a call center where they have zero knowledge they always try to talk you through their scripted list starting at step 1 turn router off then bak on again. lol................ once you divert away from that list they have no clues and your in need of an engineer who knows what IPv6 actually is etc.
