Is native IPv6 support in the works?

Coverage is not universal, but most members can enable IPv6 here:
https://members.sonic.net/connections/fusion/ipv6/

Note that due to the larger address size and encapsulation, IPv6 is a little slower than IPv4. This is why we haven't got it enabled by default for all members.

That's not native IPv6, it's 6rd.

It is native IPv6 to the client, the 6RD is transparent, inside our network and CPE.

I have fusion service, but the link: https://members.sonic.net/connections/fusion/ipv6/, doesn't think I do.

Maybe you have "FTTN Fusion" ?

Or are still on "legacy AT&T DSL Fusion" ?

I can't remember how X2 factors in here.

IPv6 availability on FTTN currently depends on -- at least -- which hardware you're using; e.g. the Pace modem lacks the necessary firmware upgrade. It also appears that AT&T may also be uniformly blocking 6in4, 3rd-party tunnels.

"We're sorry, bonded modems are not currently supported with ipv6. Please contact Support if you have any questions. - See more at: https://members.sonic.net/connections/f ... EBo95.dpuf"

How do I obtain a non bonded modem so I can have native IPv6?

Happy to beta test anything here and help Sonic get IPv6 native working. I am a Network Engineer at Facebook and have a lot of experience and access to some of the best IPv6 network engineers in the world to help us make this work.

me@cooperlees.com if you want to discuss anything off forum (Or Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/cooperlees)

Thanks,
Cooper

Any progress on this? How can those of us so inclined help test features and functionality. Sonic is falling behind in this area (IPv6).

The easy answer is to put it into bridge mode and then use a router which supports 6rd. Works great that way.
