Here's some info that shows Rogers is leading the pack, with IPv6 in Canada.

 

IPv6 in Canada


I'm not surprised with where Bell is on that chart...lol

Rogers has been pushing IPV6 for a while now, and the best part is their entire Internet and Cellular network are IPV6 enabled.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

I was just looking at the router advertisements from Rogers and I see that providing 3 prefixes, including my WAN prefix, in the 2607: range and also 2 Unique Local Address prefixes in the fd07:f798 range.  Any idea why they're pushing so many?  My firewall is only receiving the 2607: prefix, but I have also seen a single ULA prefix where the customer is not using their own router.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Hi,  

 

I'm trying to adjust some manual settings so I can test some parental controls on my WRT1900Ac Linksys router. 

 

Looking to enable a a 6rd Tunnel to allow my router to send IPv6 IP Addresses over IPv4 networks.

 

I need to get the following from Rogers, but nobody in tech support has been able to help.

 

Can some one please help and advise what the Rogers settings are for the following:

 

  • Network Setup Prefix
  • Prefix Length
  • Border Relay
  • IPv4 Address Mask Length
 
Thank you so much in advance.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

What exactly is it you're trying to do?  Rogers provides IPv6 natively, so you don't need to use 6rd.  If you use your own router and put the modem in bridge mode you can have a /56 prefix, which provides 256 /64 prefixes.  If you're trying to send one of those prefixes elsewhere, then you can use a VPN or, if you must, a 6in4 tunnel.  You wouldn't want to use 6rd in that situation, as the IPv6 addresses are tied to your IPv4 address, which means you might be trying to hand out IPv6 addresses that aren't yours.

 

The purpose of 6rd is for ISPs to provide IPv6, when native support is not available.  It is not intended for people to use IPv6 in another location.

Hi JKnott, 

 

Thanks for the response.  

 

I have having issues with Linksys router.   Seems the Parental controls are sporadic.  Sometimes, may work, most of the time it won't.  So I contacted Linksys.   To stabilize the internet blocking on the connected devices, they suggested to try the following (See link below):

Although, I have the router in Automatic mode and IPv6 enabled.  They suggested that it might solve the issue.  I reached out to them again and asked to confirm it was the right link.  

 

Your thoughts on the above would be most appreciated

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

If you're looking for info on 6rd or 6to4, you won't find any as Rogers decommissioned those services on May 18th 2017:

To use IPv6 on Rogers, the router has to support DHCPv6-PD.  The "PD" stands for Prefix Delegation, which is how Rogers pushes your prefix to your local network.  If that Linksys doesn't support it, you'll have to get another one that does.  Those instructions, in the link, appear to imply manual configuration.

 

For my firewall, I use pfSense, on a computer, which supports DHCPv6-PD.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

I have IPv6 working with pfSense, but my IPv6 address dropps from time to time.

I'm on Rogers Gigabit - is dropping IPv6 addresses a known issue?

I also have a DSL line for backup, and that IPv6 address is rock solid.

Thanks.

I have Ignite 60 and don't have problems with IPv6 dropping.  It's quite solid.  I'm also running pfSense.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Hi everyone.  Just connected my Rogers Ignite 150u service and put the modem in bridge mode and followed the suggestions on here for getting ipv6 working on my pfsense.  Just one question about the prefix delegation.  Should I be getting a /56 assigned to me as it appears that I'm only seeing a /64 assignment on my LAN interface.  On the WAN interface I put 56 as the prefix size but when I check the status of the interface for my LAN it shows the assigned prefix to be a /64.
