      Question Own 3rd party router sky roll out of ipv6 address

      Hi dose any one know how far the roll out for ipv6 has reached because i have heard of people having to start using it as there external ip address who are still using the homehub.
      The question i have is i am curently running an asus router on stock firmware and as far as i can tell it only surports sky fiber as a ipv4 service.
      How can i enable the new ipv6 service with sky fiber with my asus router?

      Meny thanks

      If you haven't already done so please do enable IPv6 support on your ASUS router.

      I would suggest that you read some of the other posts and set it up accordingly or set it to 'Auto detect'.

      Whether your line has been enabled or just how far the roll-out has progressed I can't say. Sky have indeed pushed out IPv6 support to more people over the past few weeks.

      Does anyone know how ipv6 should be enabled on the latest dd-wrt builds for sky fibre?

      Anyone? There must be someone running DD-WRT that has ipv6 up and running, surely?

      Re: Own 3rd party router sky roll out of ipv6 address

      What about those of us using static IP address on fibre pro (its definetly not an ipv6 one) Will this need to be re-issued - sky have never spoken to me about it. Thanks

      The static IP is for your line, not the router.

      Theoretically you could put any Sky or non-Sky router on your connection and still retain the same IPv5 address.

      Sadly/annoyingly there is currently no static IPv6 address. I am chasing this and was expecting some news last week but nothing was mentioned.
