Re: [IPv6] Seeing two different LAN side ranges

I assume you mean Netflix? Funny you mention that though, they had some funky outage last night. Our 4 year old fell asleep at 8-9 or so and woke up at about 11. Couldn't get her to go back to sleep till after 2 (and we didn't want to go to sleep until she did, just in case lol). Netflix on the TV kept failing to connect.

Yeah - bit me as I was trying to watch Arrested Development last night. It was related to the Amazon AWS' elastic load balancer. Netflix uses Amazon for everything but the actual streaming part of their service. Browsing and selecting movies is done via AWS instances.

Interesting info. I never knew Netflix used Amazon's services for their infrastructure. Makes sense the actual streaming would still come from Netflix since Amazon has a competing product but there's nothing stopping Netflix or another provider from leveraging Amazon's massive server infrastructure.
