IPv6 Short Address

  • April 21, 2020 at 7:56 pm

    I was trying to help a friend set up with the free service and tried to use IPv6 address: 2a0d:2a00:1:: and 2a0d:2a00:2:: but lost Internet connectivity.  They use an ISP Spectrum provided modem with wifi.  When we reverted the IPv6 DNS setting they got internet back. Why would it work with the full length paid IPv6 address but not the shorter version?

    Good question. It should work properly without any issues. Can you try with the expanded format to see if it works?


    If not, it is likely an issue on the router not accepting other DNS servers.
