Internode IPv6 up and running

2010/08/12

Tonight I got IPv6 running on my home internet connection. It’s pretty easy to do now that there is some CPE on the market that supports it. Here’s how I did it.

Start with an ISP that rocks. Internode is the only choice. Their IPv6 page will give you useful information.

Get an ADSL router which supports IPv6. The Billion 7800NL is the one you need. Download and upgrade to firmware 2.02a. Be aware that upgrading the firmware will factory reset your modem.

When your 7800NL reboots with the new firmware you will need to re-run its config wizard and setup your ADSL connection and username/password again. Don’t forget to enter your username with the @ipv6.internode.on.net suffix.

That’s all there was to it. Quick, easy, painless. Time will tell how stable it is. Thank you Internode and Billion for allowing the Australian internet to take the next step forward.
