from the not-yet dept.

APNIC reminds us that "there are now a large number of ISPs, data centres, cloud services, and software that now support IPv6" and "enabling IPv6 can be as simple as clicking a button on your WiFi router."

I turned it on, with Comcast I received an IPv6 route but no DNS server. Fortunately, Google Public DNS has unmemorable addresses, which I was able to configure manually.


It works. "There's only one thing left for you to do: Turn it on!"

[ ed: What are the alternatives to Google's Public DNS? ]

    You have IPv6. Turn it on.

    No I don't. Shut up.

    Me either. My FiOS router is from ~2008 and doesn't support IPv6. I'd have to get a new router, but that's the kind of call to tech support that I dread (though from what I just read, Verizon would like to get the older ones like mine out of circulation). Actually, come to think of it, I dread most calls to tech support...
