Re: IPv6 Vancouver

In QC/ON, DHCP-PD appears to be working fine - using that right now.

I doubt static IPv6 would be a manageable long-term plan for any ISP planning to go official with IPv6 support. There would already be enough hand-holding just guiding people to the toggle button to turn IPv6 on without having to go through the extra steps for static!

They don't need to do static addresses per se; in the sense of manually configuring the device with address / gw and so forth. Just a static allocation. Easy enough to do with their RADIUS db. That's all people are looking for.

And what is the prefix length received via PD?

Let me guess.. this is still not on the standard login realms?

Still need to request a PPPoE login on hsiservice.net

How is the throughput at peak hours? The hsiservice login used to show horrible congestion whilst the teksavvy login was fine.

I remember that. Had to quit using my old hsiservice.net because of it and did not bother trying it again until I got my N66U since my WRT54GS was not quite stable with Toastman's IPv6 build.

I haven't tried speedtest during peak hours on hsiservice since getting the N66U yet but I did download a few things at 800+KB/s (I'm on 7/1) and watched a few 720p/1080p videos on Youtube; neither of which would have been possible back when the hsiservice.net speed problems were in full force.

I'll try to remember to test tonight.

We recently found an obscure problem on those ERX's. Phibian helped us find it... that may have been related to a similar issue..

We're not aware of any other problem though.. if you see problems, please let us know.

Throughput looks fine but latency is more jittery than the 0-2ms I usually get during the day.

The @hsiservice login is way better than it was but not quite (although very close) to what the @teksavvy login is at.

I'm on 25/10 and with the teksavvy login a speedtest.net to the TekSavvy server in Toronto is 24+ and rock solid. Switching to the hsiservice login and it reports 22.67 and it wavers up and down quite a bit during the test, so it is close but not quite the same.

Let me know if you want packet captures or tcptrace analysis or any other help troubleshooting this.

Any chance we can keep this on topic "IPv6 Vancouver" ?

I tried plugging my computer directly into my modem to see what wireshark would give me. Should have done that earlier sorry.

Here is the result. I did notice the MTU was 1452
