You can test your connection here: http://ipv6test.google.com/

Apparently, Wednesday, June 8th is "World IPv6 Day" when major websites and CDNs will be sending their content over IPv6. For instance, if you cannot connect to Google on that day, you will need to surf to http://ipv4.google.com to do your searches.

My best guess is that most people will not experience any problems. Almost any computer / router purchased within the last 5 years should either be compatible / or easily upgradable. Most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) *should* already be compatible. In fact, you can obtain detailed information about your internet connection here: http://netalyzr.icsi.berkeley.edu/

Please let me know your thoughts on this. Is the current Internet infrastructure ready for the switch??

Your first link said I do not have IPV6 but I should not have any problems either.

Well, true... that IS a good result. But, if you gander at the page source, you'll discover that it isn't the best result of the test.

        <strong>Yes, looks like you’re using IPv6 already.</strong>

        You don’t have IPv6, but you shouldn’t have problems on websites that add IPv6 support.

        This may be due to problems with your home router, operating system, or ISP. For help
        resolving these issues, visit the <a href=

A little piece of Javascript picks which one of those you see.

a bear for me, as well

the second test told me my dns server is not configured, so i guess the isp is not ready.
i am using teredo, so i'm not sure if my box is ready. but i'll probably get a new one before i'm affected:)
