1 Howdy,
3 Starting a new thread.  I got my modem and router all hooked up. 
4 Networking works except IPv6 isn't quite there yet.  I even got my cell
5 phone and printer working again, IP network address changed.  I'm almost
6 certain the modem and my puter has a working IPv6.  Going to give some
7 info but some numbers may be changed, for obvious reasons since I don't
8 want some weirdo tracking me down.  Modem first: 
12 Internet IPv4 Address    74.999.999.2
13 Internet Gateway IP Address    74.999.999.1
14 Internet IPv6 Prefix    2602:999:defg:9029::
17 Since the modem is basically fully automatic, there isn't much info to
18 share here.  It shows it has IPv6 addresses tho.  Now for the router:
21 IPv6 Status
22 WAN
23 Connection Type:    
24 DHCPv6
25 IPv6 Address:    
26 ::
27 IPv6 Default Gateway:    
28 ::
29 Primary IPv6 DNS:    
30 ::
31 Secondary IPv6 DNS:    
32 ::
33 LAN
34 IPv6 Address Assign Type:    
36 IPv6 Address:    
37 2602:999:defg:9029:d66e:eff:fe42:55cf/64
38 Link-local Address:    
39 fe80::d99e:eff:fe42:55cf/64
42 Now for the puter from ifconfig:
45 root@fireball / # ifconfig
46 eth1: flags=4163<UP,BROADCAST,RUNNING,MULTICAST>  mtu 1500
47         inet  netmask  broadcast
48         inet6 fe80::9dbe:4ba5:f194:2063  prefixlen 64  scopeid 0x20<link>
49         inet6 2602:999:defg:9029:2b86:428b:95ee:ba9d  prefixlen 64 
50 scopeid 0x0<global>
51         ether 00:01:53:80:dc:35  txqueuelen 1000  (Ethernet)
54 I've looked at the manual, googled it for some tips to try and tried
55 several other things such as rebooting the router, even resetting it and
56 starting from scratch.  I also updated the firmware, one of the first
57 things I did but it wasn't to out of date.  It seems the modem is ready
58 and that the router should either get the info from the modem or just go
59 straight through and get it from my ISP, I'd suspect getting it from the
60 modem myself.  It seems for some reason, the router is not getting the
61 info it needs to make the IPv6 part work.  I'm not finding anything
62 settings wise that changes this.  It seems it should be pretty much
63 automatic just like IPv4 does.
65 I visited a IPv6 test site.  It shows IPv6 not working.  The modem has a
66 test for connections that makes me think it could be the ISP with the
67 problem.  It tests the ethernet port, DNS, DSL etc but on the IP test,
68 it fails and shows this for the details:
71 Continuity check to 6rd BR    Fail
74 The other tests passed.  Since that is the modem itself, it seems to me
75 the failure is upstream, not me this time.  But the modem shows it
76 received IPv6 info, which is confusing.  I googled the 6rd BR thing and
77 it even had a nice little picture of how things connect.  If I
78 understand it correctly, the problem is upstream but I'm not sure. 
80 Does this look like a upstream problem with my ISP or am I missing some
81 setting somewhere?  If you need additional info, let me know.  The
82 changes I made in IP numbers should be the same whether it's the modem,
83 router or puter.  I tried to match them up and only change enough to
84 make tracking hard.
86 Thanks much.
88 Dale
90 :-)  :-)
