Re: BT to Deploy IPv6 across entire network by December 2016


[re: gt94sss2] [link to this post]
 
Rolling out IPv6 doesn't mean that IPv4 will be dropped, so existing users and their kit should not be affected. It just means that new customers may be forced to use IPv6 once BT Consumer run out of IPv4 addresses.

In time of course there will be some IPv6-only web servers. That's the users' problem on old kit, not the ISPs. If a customer wants IPv6 capability they will have to buy it. How BT Consumer will handle that is another question, given the ways IPv4 and IPv6 can be set up on user equipment.

The indispensable man or woman passes from the scene, and what happens next is more or less the same thing as was happening before.

Any ISP deploying IPv6 as the only IP connectivity is going to find lots of complaints about websites not working.

IPv4 is going to be around for a long time, until such time as 99.9999% of websites and services actually work on IPv6 natively.

IPv6 with a CGNAT IPv4 address will be the way it goes if they do actually run out of IPv4 allocation

Zyborg47,

Not very impressed with BT customer service but have to say my HH5 (b) works well.

WiFi is as good as anything I have used before. Multiple users at times with no speed or drops.
Perhaps your neighbour has a faulty one.

I have to agree, the HH3 had much better wifi than the HH5 does, don't know why as the signal strength (as measured on a Macbook Wireless disgnostics) seems OK yet upstairs it always tried to connect to BT FON rather than the default 2.4 GHz signal. And no 5GHz outside the room that the HH5 is in.

TBB speed tests shows that the upstairs PC gets about 5 down, 3 up comparared to the direct Lan connection to the hub which is 50 down / 8 up. This is on an identical Macbook...

It was on for 2 days before we gave up on it, so I presume it should have updated in those couple of days, I also do nto think that is the problem anyway.
I have looked around the net and a few people have the same problems with it. I even separated the frequencies using two different SSID and that did not work either, the Windows phone would not connect, a Android phone still would not connect and the signal was low to the tablet they use.


I suppose we will have to wait and see what happens i suppose

so the old HH3 should be ok then?
