Possible problems with IPv6 activated websites

Several major organizations have participated in the testing of IPv6.  This is to motivate organizations across the industry from Internet Service Providers (ISPs), Hardware Manufacturers to Web companies around the world to prepare their products and services for IPv6.

These are the following organizations that have participated in the IPv6 testing:

Here are the possible issues one may encounter during an IPv6 testing: 

  • Linksys E2000, E3000, E4200 and other models that possibly share the same code may have issues using IPv6 including but not limited to fast internal failures when IPv6 is attempted caused by hosts not having a default route.  To resolve this, upgrade the router's firmware to the latest version.
  • Some users may have difficulty accessing dual-stacked websites.  In most cases, these users would not have problems accessing IPv4-only websites.
  • Older releases of Android did not implement RFC3484 as its system resolver resulting to issues in using IPv6.
  • Mac OS X® versions older than 10.6.5 has issues using IPv6.
  • Slow or failed Internet connectivity due to misconfigured IPv6 compatible devices.
  • Slow or failed Internet connectivity due to incompatible devices.
  • Low performance level due to congested IPv6 paths.
  • Failed connectivity due to incorrect IP Address and DNS values.
