IPv6 - ...wha?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So, I decided to check HERE to see if I am ready to go with IPv6. Apparently, things aren't in order after all...

I failed the following:
- IPv6 DNS record
- IPv6 large packet
- Test if your ISP's DNS server uses IPv6

I have a D-Link DIR-655 (which is IPv6 compatible) and I'm using TWC (road runner). Right now, the connection type in the router is set to Link-Local only. There are several others, but I'm not sure what they are or what they do. Can someone shed some light on this?

What can I do to make those tests pass?

Why would it matter if you're using IPV4 or 6? Shouldn't make a difference either way. It's not like you'll get better speeds or something.

If you're ISP is giving you an IPV4 address, then that's what you get. IPV6 is really only going to businesses at the moment, because there isn't a need for it to be implemented for home use yet. (To my knowledge)

It's your ISP. Maybe if you call and complain enough you could get one, but they decide who gets them and when. There will come a day within our lifetimes when v4 gets "shut off" and everyone gets v6, but it won't be soon. So just relax and let v4 do its thang, you're perfectly safe.

Server side kinda has to go first. If clients get v6 addresses but have no servers with which to use them, what's the point? Much easier to do servers first.
