No more IPv4

Just a few minutes ago today at 14:30 IANA ceremonially handed over the last blocks of IPv4 addresses to the five regional registries.

It is down hill from now on.

I am pleased to say that we (AAISP) are ordering our first batch of IPv6 ADSL routers today, and expect to be supplying to customers in a couple of weeks.

(The Chinese New Year had delayed things slightly)

P.S. do listen to The day the routers died

  2. Damn! Ordered my new ADSL Line at the office too early... Provision date is 16th, would I be able to get one of these IPv6 ones? :-)

  3. Lets get them in and re-test things first. These are the ones that have WiFi and stuff, so normally sold for more.

    I expect we'll put on sale initially, but I am pondering doing a special offer with them being the "Free with new orders" router for a limited time.

    Such offers are always tricky though...

  4. When will you be providing IPv6 on your data only mobile SIMs? It's the only reason I got one...

  5. These new routers will still work with internetClassic (™) ?

  6. Do they do a plain, non-"WiFi and stuff" version like the old Zyxels?

    Half-way through rearranging my network and could do with a cheap and cheerful IPv6-capable modem!

  7. It seems that for all the manufacturers the cheaper routers are coming along later. We are chasing that.
