Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

 Hi @RogersDave I see that I get IPv6 is on my phone but I have a computer with a modem in it that uses PPP to connect over LTE. The computer only get an IPv4 address and no IPv6.

 

Is it currently not supported yet for PPP? Is it still being worked on?

 

Thanks

Where does PPP fit in?  I tether via WiFi, just as I would from any other hot spot.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

@JKnott my laptop network manager use PPP to connect to the data network using its internal LTE modem.

 

Connection would show up like:

ppp0      Link encap:Point-to-Point Protocol  
          inet addr:25.17.120.5  P-t-P:10.64.64.64  Mask:255.255.255.255
          UP POINTOPOINT RUNNING NOARP MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
          RX packets:268 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
          TX packets:305 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:0
          collisions:0 txqueuelen:3 
          RX bytes:54421 (53.1 KiB)  TX bytes:47838 (46.7 KiB)

@HeavyMetal

 

We have launched dual-stack support on all three consumer APNs (ltemobile.apn, lteinternet.apn and ltedata.apn) from BC to central Ontario at this point.

 

The problem in your case is likely support from the LTE modem vendor. We have seen a very limited number of LTE modems capable of supporting IPv6 at this point and this is likely your issue.

 

Can you provide me the model number of your modem and I can see if I have any information regarding that device.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Thanks @RogersDave for the info.

 

My modem is model is a Quectel EC20-A Mini PCIe.

I have query the modem using AT commands and says it supports IPv4v6.

Can you give me the output of "AT+CDGCONT?", this should list your current APN configuration and will be a good starting point.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

@RogersDave AT+CDGCONT? gives "ERROR"

 

But AT+CDGCONT? shows

 

AT+CDGCONT?
ERROR
AT+CGDCONT=?
+CGDCONT: (1-16),"IP",,,(0-2),(0-4)
+CGDCONT: (1-16),"PPP",,,(0-2),(0-4)
+CGDCONT: (1-16),"IPV6",,,(0-2),(0-4)
+CGDCONT: (1-16),"IPV4V6",,,(0-2),(0-4)

OK

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

You will need to issue the following command to set your primary APN as dual-stack. Hopefully that will be sufficient.

 

at+cgdcont=1,"IPV4V6","ltedata.apn","0.0.0.0",0,0

 

There might be more to be done, depending on what OS you are using. It is always tricky to get these modems to work correctly with IPv6 from my experience.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Quick Question, on a Netgear r7000 which ipv6 option do I choose? I tried auto detect but it didn't work.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

@gp-se looking at my Asus RT-AC68U, here are the settings that should resemble what you have on your R7000.


Connection type: Native


DHCP-PD: Enable


Configuration: Stateless or Statefull   (either one should work without issue.  I usually use Statefull)

 

IPV6 DNS Setting:

 

Connect to DNS Server Automatically:   if enabled, uses the Rogers DNS

                                                                        if disabled, uses the DNS specified by the user

OpenDNS: IPV6 DNS address: 

 

2620:0:ccc::2
2620:0:ccd::2

 

Google IPV6 DNS address:

 

2001:4860:4860:0:0:0:0:8888


Router Advertisement: Enabled

 

 

Just to note, Netgear routers filter IPv6 ICMP. ICMP is required to run IPv6, so, this is a definite problem. See the following thread:

 

https://community.netgear.com/t5/Nighthawk-WiFi-Routers/IPv6-ICMP-Filtered/td-p/1088538

 

There are probably other threads on the net that discuss the same situation.

 

You could consider using XWRT-VORTEX. There are a couple of people in the forum who use that firmware on their R7000. I haven't seen any complaints, so, don't know if there are any issues with it.  My only concern is that its hosted on a russian server.
