I also use IPv6 extensively for work and it's inconvenient not having it at home. I'd be interested in any early access / beta programs available. I use my own router.

It's really a bummer that in 2019 that is provided is 6rd. AT&T and Comcast both have native IPv6, although I do realize they may pull more weight with equipment suppliers.

Just to throw my name in there, too, i really need IPv6 for work. It's killing me that Sonic doesn't have this yet. i'm hoping that this is a serious priority for Sonic.

hey folks - I've had good luck implementing the tunnel on pfSense (my router). But when I use IPv6 sites, I max out at 100mbs. Is that a function of my tunnel?
The only other thing in the mix is a dumb gigE switch between my ONT and my pfSense box (in case I want to give something else a public IP... like the vpn/AP device my work gives me that I don't want anywhere on my network :)

Wanted to throw my name as well for looking for IPv6

I also wanted to ping the IPv6 Experts here to make sure its not just me misconfiguring.
I am running a Mikrotik RouterOS, so configs are a little special.

So I went to the Labs config page to "request" an allocation.
I got:

Transport:: 2001:05a8:0000:0001:0000:0000:0000:227a/127
Network:: 2001:05a8:0004:0050:0000:0000:0000:0000/60

I assume the first is the address of the of the 6to4 interface I should create, and the second is the allocated address space I should use? Maybe?

So I created a 6to4 tunnel interface with my WAN IPv4 and the specified tunnel endpoint.

I picked a /64 from the address space 2001:5a8:4:55::1/64 and assigned it to the LAN side.
I enable RA messages for that interface.
I also enabled ND for the LAN interface to advertise DNS and the prefix.
I also enabled ND for the WAN 6to4 interface (?) but disabled DNS and configuration, just MAC addr.

Which works and now my hosts are picking addresses.
And I can ping the router. I can also ping the 6to4 interface.

But of course I cannot ping anything through there.
Looks like my packets head through the 6to4 interface and disappear.

Is that pretty much expected until the IPv6 is supported in some state?

6to4

You mean 6in4.

I'm considering fiber from Sonic since it was just offered it in my area but I do want ipv6 support. What's going on?
