I'm wondering what the current IPv6 status is within Rogers. A search on the forums only shows 10 topics over the past year that even mention IPv6, and there doesn't appear to be any official communications from Rogers since IPv6 day last year.
I know that Rogers (supposedly) supports IPv6 tunneling (although the only person to ask about it did not get any responses).
Solved! Solved! Go to Solution.
I read that and it confirmed that 220.127.116.11 is required for IPv6. Therefore my question really is , why was it confirmed when I explicitly asked, that the the firmware update that they would push would restore working IPv6, when it obvously didn't, and couldn't. I even mentioned 18.104.22.168 to them during the support conversation... sigh.
I'm on a CGN3ROG (22.214.171.124 firmware) bridged to an EdgeRouter and I'm not getting any IPv6 connectivity in either bridge mode or gateway mode. I've factory reset the CGN3ROG.
dhcp6c on my router is showing the following error:
Apr/28/2016 23:27:42: client6_recvadvert: advertise contains NoAddrsAvail status
If I change it to only request a prefix and not a non-temporary address as well:
Apr/28/2016 23:35:22: update_ia: status code for PD-1: no prefixes
So it appears that there's a dhcpv6 server that it's communicating with, but it's not configured to delegate any addresses or prefixes.
@gw280, we have made changes to attempt to resolve this issue. You may need to reboot your modem and/or disconnect and reconnect the EdgeRouter.
Let us know if this problem is fixed.
What are you referring to "but you can't get there from here with it. ;-)"? Not too sure if I misunderstood you. It's just NATed with IPv4 and no problem with the www... unless there are specific sites with IPv6 only addresses.
Just a bit of humour. Regardless, while I get an IP address as guest, I can't connect to anything.
One thing I've noticed is that you can't have the same SSID for both bands. This violates common practice, where a device should be able to switch between bands as needed.
In residential land with residential-grade gear?
When I tried to run 5GHz and 2.4GHz with the same SSID years ago, it was a complete disaster because clients kept favouring 2.4GHz even when they shouldn't. So I've reluctantly come to the conclusion that for residential setups, you should run separate SSIDs to force the 5GHz devices to stay there.
Now, if this was a business-grade setup with real APs, that'd be a different story. Why business-grade gear seems to handle this fine and residential-grade doesn't... is a mystery to me.
It shouldn't make any difference. There's nothing in commerial grade gear that causes the client to switch. It's entirely a client issue. Some clients switch sooner than others.
Read msg #208, just above your post. Version 126.96.36.199 is not being distributed network wide at this point in time, but should begin distribution fairly soon, unless of course any unforeseen issues come to light in the next few days.
My modem has .20 now.
BTW, is it just me or is this site sometimes a real pain to post to? I often find when I try to post I get to a screen with an activity indicator, but go no further.
Yeah, I noticed that too. It seems to go into a redirect loop and never recovers.
I have been unable to log in for over 24 hours and just got in again now. I guess whoever built this site are same same ones responsible for that Navigatr disaster.
The deployment of 188.8.131.52 on the CGN3ACSMR Rocket Wi-Fi modem has not officially started yet. A very limited number of users have received it as part of troubleshooting and testing of reported issues.
I now have 184.108.40.206. I can configure ssh port forwarding, which I couldn't before. Also, while I get an IPv6 address, it doesn't seem to be working. Also, the Guest WiFi doesn't seem to get an address.
I have come to the conclusion that the firewall on the Hitron modem/router is useless. I'm back in bridge mode, with a computer running Linux as my firewall/router.
The following issues are now considered resolved:
At this point, we believe that all previously reported regional issues have been resolved. If there are still remaining issues, let me know and I will have them adressed accordingly.
I can't seem to get a V6 delegation with an EdgeRouter Lite in Ottawa West. I'm already using DHCPv6-PD with a DSL provider, so I know my network and router support DHCPv6-PD. It's also the same router others have reported success. Is Ottawa West (Richmond Road phub) enabled yet?
I am happy to annouce that the last milestone in the deployment and enablement of IPv6 is underway.
We have now started the deployment of firmware 220.127.116.11 on the Rocket Advanced Wi-Fi Modem (CGN3ACSMR) which enables allows IPv6 in both bridge and gateway mode.
A first wave of modem has now been upgraded. After a pause of a few days to ensure no major issues are discovered, all remaining modems will be upgraded.
That's excellent news.. Looking forward to being back on 18.104.22.168, although I have to say that 22.214.171.124 has been fine once the IPv6 stack was activated...
Looks like it's back to 126.96.36.199 after last night's update.
This version also fixes the rather interesting "command execution" exploit that 188.8.131.52 is vulnerable to.
