[DSL] Not sure I understand the address allocation...

weird..
I got
2607:f2c0:f00e:XXXX::/56
2607:f2c0:a000:XXXX::/64
Assigned to me.

So I got a /64 .. then I got a bundle of 64 /64s assigned (the /56) and they are completely separate.
I put the /56 into my router and enabled prefix delegation. IPV6 works fine, but my DHCP-PD network is
2607:f2c0:1001:XXXX::/64 ... which seems to be in yet another address block.... just how many addresses am I eating ? (and where did this PD network come from - I was expecting my router to dole out one of the 64 subnets available in my /56 , not somehow acquire a brand new subnet)....

What am I missing?

The /64 is your single IP. The /56 subnet is 256 IPs you can distribute to your devices.

Once you connect with your @hsiservice.net you'll receive the /64 IPv6 IP. You'll then need to configure the /56 in the router.

You may find more information here : »IPv6 beta

Martin, yep, I got that. However, I configured the /56 on the WAN side of the router, and I got the third network assigned to my local devices through prefix-delegation.

Its working - »test-ipv6.com/ gives me 10/10 , but the address it shows me using isn't in the /64 OR the /56. (or I can't read addresses.) If you look at those subnets, you can see I definitely have three separate allocations - and you're routing the third one to me - is there a dynamic allocation somewhere here that I don't understand - that's all. (if i configure the /64, /56 statically, that works no problem as well - not having a functional issue, just curious about that third address block)

What address does test-ipv6 show you coming from? It's not a Teredo or a link local or some other type is it?

The /64 is for the WAN interface. The /56 is for your LAN.
