Ipv6 for residential users


  • What options are available to connect to the ipv6 Internet, based on the following scenario:

    - no ISP and no router support for IPv6

    - no ISP but IPv6 capable router

    - ISP but no IPv6 capable router


    I would like to find out all the possible mechanisms to connect to the internet using IPv6, based on the scenarios above. I currently find myself in the first situation and I managed to connect using tunnel broker and Teredo. What other ways are available to connect for each situation?


    Thank you

  • The transition technologies are the only way you're going to be able to connect if there is no support from your routers or ISP. You've already discovered Teredo and that is probably your best option but if you have public IPv4 addresses then you can use 6to4.

    As long as your providers and routers/firewalls allows protocol 41 you should be fine in any of your scenarios.

    Does this answer your question?
