I think a Draytek 2860n is third party

Use the Ginp Formula to determine if your vdsl2 connection is with or without G.INP.
Divide your IP Profile by your Sync Speed and the answer is 0.9669 (with) or 0.9679 (without)

Sorry I know this is old.

I just got IPv6 too - I changed my DNS servers on my mac to Googles to get 10/10

Is that right? Or are there some I should put into the router from BT? or should I have BT auto give me some?

It's the same with Sky, that the customer DNS servers are not IPv6-enabled even though customer connections are.

Of course that doesn't mean IPv6 addresses can't be looked up, it just means that a DNS server without an IPv4 address (unlikely for some time) will not be able to be accessed by the Sky/BT customer DNS servers .

So not likely to cause lookup failures for quite some time, but something that both ISPs should rectify.

I posted on the BT forums just the other day asking for IPv6 to be enabled, take a look at my thread here if you like.

As mentioned, they can't do IPv6 on a per-user basis for some reason, but when I installed OpenWRT onto an old router and swapped out the HH5, I was able to force it to get me an IPv6 address.

Just like idmanager, I am also on the Leabrooks exchange.

Modem: Huawei HG612 3B -- Unlocked SP08 Firmware w/ BLOB A2pv6C038m.d24j
Router: TP-Link WR1043ND -- OpenWRT Chaos Calmer 15.05.1

Current Connection: BT Infinity 2 (80/20)
Previous Connection: BE Pro (24/2.5) -- Left because of Sky takeover.
