Rogers IPv6 Status

Hello,

 

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).

This /64 IPv6 prefix, will it be static or Dynamic ? I noticed, when i rebooted my modem 3,4 part changed (1:2:3:4/64). Is this normal ?

I don't work for Rogers so take this with a grain of salt. 

 

I don't think the IPv6 prefix will change unless the MAC address of the device connecting to the network changes. In other words, unless you make a hardware change the prefix should stay constant. I don't think Rogers has a policy to assign static prefixes to residential clients though.

 

My prefix has not changed since IPv6 went active which was a few weeks ago.

 

There are no guarantees but unlike with IPv4 where there is a limited pool of addresses to assign, the IPv6 address pool, or in IPv6 speak "prefixes," that Rogers has availble means that they don't need to worry about running short so they don't have to juggle them like they did for IPv4.

 

If your prefix has changed it may be due to another reason other than anything Rogers may be doing on their end.

DHCPv6-PD uses something called "DHCP Unique Identifier" (DUID) which usually contains the MAC or link local address of the modem or router.  This won't change, unless you change the hardware.

I am 100% sure i didnt change my router in the last 365 days. My modem was always in bridge mode. 

another question: why is there no WAN ip address listed in my router's WAN interface ? Is this normal ?

Hello Raji,

 

While we do use Dynamic DHCP, as far as I'm aware, the prefixes in IPv6 shouldn't change.
