comment What is the Maximum MTU supported in DSL Standards
A mostly correct answer, but not to the question asked. I am a little wary about resurrecting this 4 year old question, as I am no longer involved in DSL service provision; however MTU and large scale misunderstanding of it is still a personal hobby horse of mine. You are correct to state that 4470 is often used as a default when running IP over AAL5 on ATM; however it is a convention not a standard. My question is whether the ITU standards define a maximum MTU for DSL, not what common conventions are used.

comment How can I find out the next IPv6 address?
While I agree that trying to use stateless auto-config with less than a /64 is likely to cause a lot of pain, there is nothing in the RFCs that preclude the use of longer masks when manually configuring things. Auto-config is great for home / office client PCs; however in a hosted server or network infrastructure use of stateless auto-config is generally frowned upon and addresses will either be assigned manually or using a stateful config method (e.g. DHCPv6).
