I was listening to the Guardian Tech Weekly podcast the other day. In it they discussed the implications of IPV4 addresses running out and the impending arrival of IPV6 address.
So I started looking at the various modems/routers I have around the house to figure out if they support IPV6.
And as expected the main Dynalink ADSL modem which connects to the ISP and provides broadband to the house does not support IPV6. The other wireless routers (and I have three of them around the house — an Airport Extreme and two Airport Express) both have the options to configure IPV6.
Now, I still don’t fully understand what exactly are the implications on my home infrastructure when the time comes to switch to IPV6, but might have start looking for a new modem over the next year!
One thought on “Is My Home Ready for IPV6?”
I’m still not entirely up with it all either but I found Ars Technica had some great reading on the subject:
* Everything you need to know about IPv6
* How should my organization approach the IPv6 transition?
