[quote="["StrikerX"], post:, topic:"]

Good. & I think they have already implemented this cause I am alotted both IPV6 & IPV4 address (Dual Stack).

Your readiness scores

7/10 for your IPv4 stability and readiness, when publishers offer both IPv4 and IPv6

7/10 for your IPv6 stability and readiness, when publishers are forced to go IPv6 only

You appear to be using a public 6to4 gateway; your router may be providing this to you automatically. Such public gateways have no service level agreements; you may see performance problems using such. Better would be to get a native IPv6 address from your ISP. [more info]

Your DNS server (possibly run by your ISP) appears to have no access to the IPv6 Internet, or is not configured to use it. This may in the future restrict your ability to reach IPv6-only sites.

see this their official forum http://forum.ptcl.net/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10

How exactly do we enable IPV6 on our current routers?

you can’t. you need to buy a new ipv6 compatible modem or upgrade firmware if available.

my modem is not compatible i am connected through bridge mode(dial up)

capture from my modem page

duh! they are fooling people.

when we connect by dial up we get OS built in 6to4 tunnel service which allows us to connect to ipv6 network while in ipv4 network.

they are not offering native ipv6 or allotting their own ipv6 addresses.

allright, so wht is this IPv6 stuff? does it allows to transfer data at a faster rate or wht?

^it allows for more ip address because we are close to running out with version 4.

You can always install opensource firmware like openwrt or ddwrt. There are ipv6 packages available for them.

@ the ones using ipv6

can you post a tracert bbc.net.uk here using the ipv6 address please :)

first of all thanks for posting the tracerts.... the pings look very high, i had an impression that the pings would be lesser once ipv6 is running (revised routing)... But i guess its still too early to assume anything...

previously (and currently) our pings with asia sucked (singapore, malaysia, india , japan etc) becuause of indirect routing.... I hope that changes too once ipv6 goes mainstream
