IPV6 Xbox

Highlighted
2: Seeker

Hello all,

I've recently been having issues on Xbox with my NAT type constantly going from Open to Moderate and I keep getting disconnected from online lobbies/servers, I've seen on Xbox that they advise you to use IPV6, so I've been trying to get this sorted out but have become stuck in doing this. I have accessed the router and have checked that IPV6 is enabled, it is, yet my Xbox will still not use it, I've recently Wired my Xbox to the router instead of wireless as well. My router says that IPV6 is On in the Status section. So unsure as to how to get this sorted and have my Xbox use IPV6 and not IIPV4. Any help would be appreciated and I can provide screenshots of any info needed, just ask.

Thank you!

Hey @Nath6692, there's a few threads in regards to IPv6 on this community that you may want to read here.

Thank you Dane, I have seen this thread before, however as it is dated from 2018 stating that Vodafone does not offer IPV6, I was unsure if this is still the case in 2020. Does Vodafone still not offer IPV6?

Yes @Nath6692, that's right. We still don't offer IPv6. I can only apologise for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

This is ridiculous, it's 2020 and Vodafone still do not offer IPv6.

BT have offered IPv6 for for a some years now, why is Vodafone not offering this?

That's disappointing, I always seem to have issue on Xbox with NAT type, no matter what I do I can't seem to get rid of this issue and was hoping IPV6 could resolve this for me. Anyway thank you for confirming.

Have you put the IP address of the Xbox in the DMZ ?

Yeah I thought the same, I had this on BT at my parents house years ago, only moved to Vodafone once I moved out and thought it would have been standard in late 2019/20. Will go back to BT if this still isn't offered anytime soon.

That is really bad... I recently changed to vodafone and have issues with fluctuating speed and my xbox upstairs has to be reconnected to the router everytime i turn it on... cant understand it.

 

As for IPv6 there was a report last year from Voda stating that it would be fully implemented by spring this year... and yet it isnt.

I was with BT for years and never had issues with router, xbox connections or speed throttling and even though I've only been with Voda for a couple weeks now I am beginning to think that it wasnt worth changing.

Vodafone

Vodafone only returned to the fixed broadband ISP market in 2015 and so you might perhaps expect them to have been better prepared for IPv6, although like some of the others above they haven’t rushed toward adoption. Nevertheless they’re now home to over 600,000 customers and appear to have set a clear plan for IPv6, which is good news.

A Vodafone Spokesperson told ISPreview.co. uk:

“We are well into planning and will have fully implemented it by late spring next year.”

It's not worth changing, I made the same mistake, I'll be going back to BT soon, never had issues like I have now.
