IPv6 does not work IPv6 domains without AAAA records.

I'm unable to reach microsoft.com or apple.com when my router has IPv6 enabled.  According to the tool found here https://ready.chair6.net/, neither microsoft.com nor apple.com have AAAA records.  I was able to reach google.com which has an AAAA record.  What's the real problem.  Is it my router, Cox or the websites not having AAAA records?

I'm sticking with IPv4 for now.

  • Hi Omaha Geek, it's possible this is related to an issue affecting Cox Omaha customers since yesterday. Our network engineers are investigating an IPv6 issue when accessing certain websites such as Apple.com, CNN.com, FoxNews.com, and Netflix.com. Network traffic to the affected websites go through an Akamai peering point, so we're working with Akamai and hope to have the issue resolved soon. -Becky, Cox Support Forums Moderator
