Just the yearly "When are we getting IPv6?" request. Please join us in 2018, Shaw. Even just 6rd or something.
The XB6 modem has IPv6 enabled.
Both bridged and router mode. No idea why only this modem though.. Maybe their version of a limited roll-out
How, where please?
Call in and ask for the new modem. You'll likely have to sign a new two year agreement or pay the rental fee of $10/month.
thx, got the router today, how do I verify ipv6?
IPv6 test - IPv6/4 connectivity and speed test would be an easy place to test.
Thank you, now to understand the info lol. seriously though, just to figure out TP DNS settings. Do I really have to buy another router? Any recommendations, in a small basement suite
I'm using a mini computer with dual NICs and pfSense myself. If you're using a standard home router I'd likely just use the XB6 as a router rather than a modem. At first glance it looked like it had enough of the basic features required. Otherwise I'd likely get something like Google WiFi or TP Link has a Deco mesh network model. Linksys Velop is apparently pretty good too.
Yeh using the XB6 as a router right now while I figure out why my linux router keeps throwing a kernel panic on IP6 fragmentation. So far the XB6 is reasonably solid under load, hasn't forcibly restarted yet, and passes bufferbloat tests well enough. Lacks many useful features but for a home router it def seems more stable than many models we've seen in the past. And best of all it has a client-side option to enable/disable bridge mode, and an accessible UI even when bridging.
They told me I would need to sign a 2 year agreement and pay a $10/mo rental fee.
So I moved my internet to the other local provider who rolled out v6 to all their customers quite some time ago.
pretty pathetic if you ask me, who are you with and ho much less? did you use their modems or xb6
