Billion BiPac 7800N ipv6 configuration assistance needed.

Hi Guys,
I am having only limited success with ipv6 - I am part of the PlusNet ipv6 trial & I am using the trial login.
I have a Billion BiPac 7800N with v1.06e firmware.
Has anyone had any success with this router & if so, can you share the correct settings to use?

I think there are a few threads about issues with this router, though it did work fine for me, so I believe it's a recent thing.

There appear to be some "issues" with IPv6 on the 7800N and Plusnet.
I and sjrinfroyle have posted in this and the Billion forums.

@dvorak
Is IPv6 still working for you with a 7800N? It was OK for me at first but problems started with the IPv6 maintenance carried out by Plusnet on 12/07/2011 http://community.plus.net/forum/index.php/topic,97228.0.html.
Edit: Added link to maintenance announcement.

I gave up my space on the trial after a few weeks, it was working great and I tested everything I needed to so handed it back before the issues.

Re: Billion BiPac 7800N ipv6 configuration assistance needed.

Thanks for the quick reply guys, but I was given my ipv6 login TODAY - I need some practical advice on actual settings.
If anyone knows what settings work well, or can provide a link to some help page it would be greatly appreciated.
Cheers.

Re: Billion BiPac 7800N ipv6 configuration assistance needed.

I made notes on my setup. Can PM them to you if you wish when I get back home, will be late tonight.
IIRC put username & password in for normal setup, for IPv6 enable it. Can't remember navigation but documented it all.
BUT it used to work for me but no longer does unless I apply a manual fix via telnet.
The 582n I received today works OK.
Hope this helps.

Re: Billion BiPac 7800N ipv6 configuration assistance needed.

Can you get it working with IPv4 using the test login?

Yes I can..
I also managed to access some IPV6 sites, but it failed the tests on http://test-ipv6.com. I was using some blundering manual config settings that I'm certain were wrong.

I knew you were going to ask... I'll try & remember.
In Wan profile, I had ipv6 address set to "::". I have no idea what address it is picking up.
Here is how I show my ipv6 ignorance. My clients were not picking up a v6 address. To allow them, I set IPV6 autoconfig:
interface address / prefix length = fc00::/7
dhcpv6 server type = stateful

What does the Billion status page show under gateway, netmask and Primary DNS?
