      Nice to know that the 10 second rule will be a thing of the past.

      I found this to be an interesting read. It would appear UK ISPs mostly abide by this but around the world there are some really bizarre implementations.

      Turned ipv6 on and was feeling pretty smug until the DHCPv6 lease dropped at 24 hours and 40 minutes. So the fix hasn't been rolled out to my exchange yet.

      Weird about your IPv6 PPP issues - before I switched over to FTTC I used PPPoA for v4 and PPP for v6 and had the same v6 allocation after reboots. With DHCPv6 I seem to get a different v6 allocation every time it comes back and thats despite the IAID being the same. Very odd.

      I don't seem to have had any issues with IPV6 using my RT-AC3200 router with Asuswrt-Merlin firmware.
      I always score 17 out of 20 when doing the IPV6 test.

      Yep merlin has always been rock solid and never dropped ipv6 n my various Asus routers, even back in days when ipv6 was first enabled. I have since switched to pfSense and have disabled ipv6 entirely as I couldn't prevent it leaking, however it was perfectly stable on that too for the month or two I used it. I use a hacked eci modem with lede on so i'm wondering if that saved me all the hassles but i'm not sure.
