Asus RT-N56U (IPv6 lost internet)
« on: February 11, 2013, 12:20:12 PM »

My tunnel endpoint is a router running stock firmware version:3.0.0.4.334. The router advertises the IPv6 to the LAN using radvd.
So far my PC running Windows 8 and my Macbook Pro have no problem receiving IPv6.

BUT..a little while ago IPv6 stopped working. I couldn't open any IPv6 websites, even on my system tray network notification shows IPv6 Connectivity as No Internet Connection.
Is it because of the Anycast Caching Nameserver being down?

Is it because of the Anycast Caching Nameserver being down?
That is probably not the reason. Problems reaching your name server should affect access to IPv4 and IPv6 sites alike, thus the symptoms you describe don't sound like a name server being down.

The symptoms are however consistent with your tunnel being down. If your tunnel is down, it will break access to the caching name server over IPv6. It will also break access to IPv6 sites. Additionally it will break any ping6 command that would traverse the tunnel. The ping commands you posted show that you can ping your local side of the tunnel, but not the tunnel server side of the tunnel. I conclude your problem is that your tunnel is down.

First step in debugging a tunnel that is down is to do an IPv4 traceroute towards the IPv4 address of the tunnel server (216.218.221.6 in your case as far as I can tell).

Problems with the anycast DNS server not responding do happen. I configured my own network to fallback to unicast to another DNS server. In a pool of anycast DNS servers each of them must also have a unicast address. You can find out the unicast address of the DNS server you are currently using by looking up the AAAA record for mydnsv6.kasperd.net.
