IPv6 setup on your router behind JIO router

hopefully bsnl soon
Interesting, I've not seen that happening at all whenever I have tried with a JioFi. So I use a outdoor LTE device with a Jio sim and I have been able to get only a single IPv6 public address. I have not investigated much though as I always thought it is not possible. Will do some testing in that case.

My outdoor LTE device is in bridge mode and my main OpenWRT router is what gets the main IP address etc.

This sounds like those Lte cpe unit, can you post a link to the unit ? does it have a directional antenna ?, i have line of sight to one of the tower so i would like to get a directional antenna based lte cpe if they exist to get the most reduction in noise, i was going to an usb lte modem on openwrt connected to a directional antenna on the roof for a second failover wan with openwrt

also if it was from AliExpress do you mind sharing how much you paid in taxes

thank you

I got mine from an Alibaba seller (Yeacomm YF-P11), similar to this listing US $90.95 26% OFF|Yeacomm YF P11K CAT4 150M Outdoor 3G 4G LTE CPE Router with WIFI Hotspot|lte cpe|4g lte router wifihotspot router - AliExpress. i didn't get it shipped to India, I got it when I went to China (shipped to my hotel). Customs duty is a matter of luck when a package comes over postal channel. It would be either be duty free or 42% of the declared value (or assessed value).

Anyway it has an omnidirectional antenna, if you need directional, there are models from Mikrotik, but would be bit more expensive in India.

Even the IPv6 subnet is dynamic and changes with every ONT reboot or more like after expiring the DHCP lease time.
As I’m using Pi-Hole for my network what I had to do was disable DHCPv4 as Pi-Hole is managing it otherwise the DNS does not change for some reason. And for IPv6 it is automatically assigned from the router itself (stateful). But I have to keep running a script even though it’s on a crontab in order to update the Public IPv6.
So my guess is that even the IPv6 ranges has a lease time and after it expires then it changes the IPv6 addresses for the clients too.
