ISP Offer IPv6 Connectivity?

This question was asked over 2 years ago and had no eta, at that point.  http://forum.telus.com/thread/3521/category//board//


Is there a public roadmap with an ETA on the availability of IPv6 Connectivity to Telus Internet customers?  It's a bit ridiculous that we need to ask this question in 2015.  There are 3 small providers in the Montreal area that provide IPv6, but the rest of Canadians are out of luck?

Hey @mtylerb


As @Dark_Knight indicated, the roll out has already begun! 


We’ve taken a phased approach to ensure the best possible customer experience, with expected completion by early 2016. 


The short version: We started with our COs (central offices) and will work our way down to the customer level (modems). Most of our modems will be compatible, including Actiontec V1000H, V2000H, T1200H and T2200H. Once the local CO has been updated, all you need to do is make sure your modem is connected to our network, and it will receive the necessary firmware updates to enable support for IPv6.

bingo got it

here is config for working IPV6 on edgemax

does anyone on here own any UBNT edgemax devices? IPV6 setup on EdgeOS via CLI would be much appreciated

@skyblaster

Ya I realize ULA would make things easier, however everything having its own publicly accessible address was one of my main reasons for deploying IPv6 in the first place.

I know it CAN be done with scripts, powershell can change DHCP pools and I can invoke PS scripts from other scripts on my router, it just seems like there should be an easier way...

AHHH,  I FOUND MY ISSUE, there is a bug in tomato when QOS is applied IPV6 has problems, applied a script and fixed it!!!!

now to try to get to work on ER-X....

@Kolby_G​ Not sure if this is what you're going for, but for your VLAN strategy you may want to look into distributing a separate ULA prefix. OpenWrt assigns a /48 by default.

@Connor​ I posted the following response on YouTube in case you missed it:

Does the same thing happen using stock R7000 firmware? Sadly this router uses a Broadcom wireless chipset not supported under OpenWrt. DHCPv6-PD with Telus is working great on my WNDR3700v4 running Chaos Calmer 15.05.

@Connor What are your settings? Does tomato have some sort of command to print out all settings relating to IPV6? If so pastebin it and link it here and I'll take a look, the video is helpful but a configuration printout would be much easier to scan through. May I ask why your not using the ER-X, I'm not sure which router you have running tomato but I'm willing to bet the ER is much much better ;).


I just got IPv6 enabled in my town so I haven't had too much time to play with it yet. I've been doing testing with a Mikrotik CCR so far, no issues, however there are some things I haven't figured out yet.


Here's what I've been successful with so far (note that I am on fiber, not DSL, so I'm not sure what differences there may be in feature availability):


Grabbed 2x /56 ranges via the WAN interface

Assigned 6 pools of /64 ranges per /56 range

Distributed those /64 ranges to different VLANS via the Mikrotik DHCPv6 Server


Other then that I haven't played with much, I'm still unsure of how I'm going to integrate this into my actual network. I am not aware of a way to dynamically assign a pool to my production DHCP server (Windows 2012R2) every time my /56 changes with Telus. I'm sure its possible with scripts, but it's going to be a PITA.


Another thing I haven't found a way around is how to setup VLAN routing with IPv6, since the range is dynamic, the interface address keeps needing to be changed.


Example:

In IPv4 my VOIP VLAN has an interface address of 172.18.201.1/26 but in IPv6 I can assign somthing like 2001::201:0001/122 but then if my range changes I need to change the interface address to reflect the address pool change. I will probably do more extensive testing on this issue next week, hopefully I overlooked something other wise I can see I'll be making a lot of scripts....


@Kolby_G How did you get this working in your mikrotik? I've got a mikrotik setup on my bridge port of the actiontec and I want to grab a ipv6 address from the wan... I am only starting out with IPv6 so plz bear with me. 😄  I can get the prefix bound but just not the address.....

@Tjopsta Here are the steps I've taken in my test VM lab. I still haven't rolled this out to any of the prod networks in my house and haven't really played with this in about 6 months. It appears to work fine, I have a lot of testing to do still before I can start using this on my main networks though.

 

1. Create a DHCPv6 Client

Capture.PNG

You can choose anything for the pool name

 

2. Create a new address under IPv6 > Addresses

Capture2.PNG

Choose the pool you created in the last step, and pick the interface your client computers are connected to. Make sure "Advertise" is checked. The address box will be the interface address, I just picked ::1/64, this will automatically change to the correct external one once you hit OK.

 

That *should* be all you have to do to get external access working. That's really as far as I've gotten. I had other projects I've been working on and haven't had much time to play around with this lately. Let me know if you run into any issues and I'll try to help.

Organizer

Hi all, i am on DSL with T1200 port 1 bridge using Tomato Shibby 132.

i also have a ubnt ER-X but ill worry about that later

i feel i have all the IPV6 settings correct, but i cant figure out whats wrong, everytime i do a release/renew, ipv6 gets through for 5 pings, then cuts out.

i made a video

i have setup for DHCPv6-PD /56 i have manual DNS entered same DNS my T1200 showed and i have SLAAC DHCP on lan enabled

@skyblaster

I wish that were the case for me. I am currently on my 12th IPV4 address in my 10 months with Telus. My router has 463 days of uptime and I have never manually released my IP. With my previous ISP I had the same address for 3.5 years. This address had even lasted through a 12 hour power failure.

Friendly Neighbour

@ShaunLaing I have a V1000H in full bridge mode with an OpenWRT router handling the routing. This may or may not relate to your issue, but using tcpdump to watch the DHCPv6 traffic on ports 546 and 547 I do recall seeing the "NoPrefixAvail" error message when requesting a subnet larger than /56.


@Kolby_G Regarding the static-ness of prefixes; if you simply reboot your modem/router you will most likely receive the previous prefix (same behavior as with dynamic IPv4 addressing). From my testing, a DHCPv6 release is required before a new prefix is issued. I'll have to test the DHCPv6 "norelease" option in OpenWRT. I would assume that if you never release the prefix, the server will continually issue the same one barring any forced releases from the server itself.

I am on IP v6 IP address with Telus internet service. This first ISP in Canada to connect me to the REAL IP v6 address .. I  gotta say it is long butt IP address. LOL! 

Ambassador

@Leif_E That's good to hear, I was hoping that was the case. I wish they were available in my area now :P.

Resident

I've confirmed that I have two /56s: one assigned to the Actiontec modem and the other assigned to my router (attached to port 1 of the Actiontec which is configured in bridging mode)?


@ShaunLaing​ do you have your router connected to port 1 and is the Actiontec configured for bridging on that port? That's the only way you will get the Telus DHCP server rather than the Actiontech's. You should also get a public IPv4 address on your router.

Ambassador

@ShaunLaing​ Ahh, **bleep**. I don't know of a way to completely bypass it with DSL, only fiber. It's strange that it's answering the requests in bridge mode, it should turn off the routing features completely. If it can answer DHCP requests it's definitely not acting as a simple modem.


I don't have an actiontec so I cant try this, but is there a way to turn off the DHCP server and client on the actiontec? I doubt the option is available with the standard login, but unless they changed the root password it can be easily found by googling ;).


One other thing worth mentioning, are you sure it's the actiontec responding with the "NoPrefixAvail" message and not Telus's actual DHCP servers? If its the actual DHCP servers responding with that message it could be that Telus only provides one range per account, and your actiontec has already taken it. In that case you could try to set the external interface's mac address on the linux box to the same as the actiontec's, then rebooting both to see if it will grab the range instead. If this doesn't work its possible that your actiontec is actually still acting as a router, but it has just switched that one port to a bridge sharing the external interface. In bridge mode I would think that the actiontec shouldn't even get an external IPV4 address, which it clearly is getting. Unfortunately if they only offer one range, and the actiontec isn't actually turning off its DHCPv6 client, what you're trying to do may not be possible :(.

Neighbour

@Kolby_G​: It's an actual machine with routing. My actiontec is a DSL modem, so I don't think I can connect directly, but correct me if I'm wrong. I have tried setting the linux machine as the IPv6 DMZ gateway, but the actiontec still answers DHCPv6 requests that my linux box submits.

Ambassador

@ShaunLanig What exactly do you mean by "linux router". Is this an actual linux machine with routing set up? If so why are you going through the actiontec? Why not just hook your router directly to the alcatel modem (assuming you're on fiber)?


@Matthew_Wilder It will be interesting to see how a dynamic IPV6 range will work out. I can't really imagine L3 routing working very well if the interface address keeps changing, but then again I haven't really tested much with IPV6, waiting for an official rollout rather then playing with half working tunnels.

Neighbour

The router definitely supports IPv6 (please see the attached image), but you're right @Nighthawk​​, perhaps it doesn't support IPv6 subnet delegation. It *is* answering my DHCPv6 request, though, just with a "No subnets available" message.  I'm hoping someone from Telus can let me know...



Community Power User

You may be expecting too much from a residential gateway. It's not the most advanced device out there.

Q. Does this device support IPv6? 

A. No this device does not support IPv6.
