well the router's ip was 192.168.0.1 ... my internet ip was that 173.x.x.x, my desktop dhcp to the router was 192.168.0.101
anyhow i've gotten rid of that router because of dropped wifi..
however, i did get that router to see if i could have ipv6 connectivity 100% of the time.. it does say it's ipv6 compatible, but that's assuming my isp provides ipv6, which i found that it didn't
(not all the time)
what i mean 100% of the time is that i CAN sometimes get an ipv6 connection, but it just RANDOMLY works.. and by randomly, i do mean it! and this is with an older non-ipv6 compatible netgear router .. and it also worked randomly with this d-link router i mentioned previously..
what happens is that I CAN ping the google ipv6 address SOME TIMES, but not all the time.. right now i can:
this is on a laptop running 32bit win8 pro... however, 2 hours from now, or even 20 minutes, the ability to ping google ipv6 will go away,then it might come back, who knows...
also, right now i could turn on my desktop running windows 7 64bit, try to ping the google servers, and it won't work yet it's working on my laptop...
then sometimes ipv6 will work on my desktop and not on my laptop..
sometimes it could be working on both at the same time, and sometimes on neither lol
also on the internet status on windows, on ipv6 it will always say "No Internet Access" even though it'll be working some times
sometimes i could try pinging ipv6 google, it won't work, then i restart my pc, and it will work..
im not using any tunnels or anything either, just a stock windows 7/8 OS ...
anyone know why this happens?
