Thread: IPv6 Support

  1. #46
    I'm with BT here in the UK, I hope they rollout soon.

    Seems my Post Office broadband doesn't support it either (TalkTalk network I think).

    True, but then I can't talk to my substandard TV etc - and there will no doubt be pewpews up in arms about "fiddling" when all I want is a smooth internet experience

    This is great news, sadly while my business connection at work already has IPV6, my home connection wont get IPv6 until mid year. Being the boss I do play in the office when its quiet and connect to our office vpn when playing via mobile and laptop on the road. Although I do not imagine the laptop connection will benefit, it is still great to see Fdev offering IPv6 support.

    Here with my ISP, IPv6 somehow provides better routing than that of IPv4. Overall, your latency will remain the same.

    IPv6 adoption has begun to ramp up over the past year or so now.

    Is this all going to cost us?

    It's really in the best interests of the ISP's to deploy and propagate IPV6 asap - however for heaps of reasons (mostly financial and / or completely fictional) they seem to enjoy dragging their backsides about it.

    Cost you how? This will be back end client stuff.

    If your ISP doesn't have IPv6 active, there's nothing much for you to be worried about here. Game servers will be providing IPv6 and IPv4 at the same time.

    Simple reason - obsolete hardware. To upgrade ALL of them - and you need to upgrade all of them - costs provider huge chunk of money. Considering cut throat costs in that field plus shareholder expectations of profits over the years, hardly anyone can justify that kind of investment - unless forced by gov or situation (like running out of IPv4, which is actually major force of movement now).

    Yes Sky has IPv6 rolled out and I see it in the router settings. Is there anything that will immediately need changing or just select it in 2.3 Beta (28th Feb?) and just see if it keeps contact? If it doesn't then I use suggested posts already here ok.

    I scored 9/10 for the checks: http://test-ipv6.com/
    "Good news! Your current configuration will continue to work as web sites enable IPv6.
    Your DNS server (possibly run by your ISP) appears to have no access to the IPv6 Internet, or is not configured to use it. This may in the future restrict your ability to reach IPv6-only sites.
    Test if your ISP's DNS server uses IPv6=bad"


    Must I do something about my DNS Server?

    Possibly of use to people to test if their IPv6 works: http://test-ipv6.com/

    W00t, Sky has IPv6

    Test your connections folks, as the ISPs may not have told you it's on
