Andrews & Arnold - TG582n the chosen router for IPv6
Earlier in November we found out that Andrews & Arnold was testing a new IPv6 capable router, that would be cheap enough to supply free to its customers. The router can now be identified as the Technicolor TG582n wireless router.
Adrian Kennard has an informative blog article that talks about the various devices they had tried, and reveals that Technicolor sent an engineer to spend a day with them tweaking the router to make it work. An important point is that at this time while the TG582n works on the Andrews & Arnold network with respect to IPv6, it is not ready for general release just yet in respect to IPv6, that will be a few weeks away.
For those looking to try and future proof their broadband hardware, the blog reveals that simply buying something labelled as IPv6 ready may not be the best option. It would be sensible to look at hardware that others are actually using, as far too often firmware needs updates or as this ISP found the IPv6 is buggy or will not work on PPPoA services.
