Conflicting information from Comcast about IPv6 availability

Conflicting information from Comcast about IPv6 availability

I've been trying to figure out how, or when I can get IPv6 on my business Internet account. This is important to me because I am in the software/website hosting business and my clients are starting to see native IPv6 connections on their devices.

 

My modem is the SMC D3G-CCR which appears to be capable of IPv6. Several forum messages say that IPv6 should be available to me, but my modem does not have/get an IPv6 address.

 

Also, this official Comcast resource hasn't been working in about six months: http://www.comcast6.net/index.php/8-ipv6-trial-news-and-information/108-want-to-know-if-comcast-ipv6...

 

How do I get IPv6,if it's really available here and, if not, where can I get up-to-date information?

Thanks John,

 

It works! Last time I tried rebooting the modem it didn't get an IPv6 address, but yesterday (Jan 6, 2015) it did.

 

All is working as expected now. Happy 2015.

Re: Conflicting information from Comcast about IPv6 availability

Hello,

 

I run the IPv6 program for Comcast.  I can tell you that we launched full IPv6 suppot for the SMC D3G CCR.  If you are in router mode your router will be assigned a /128 IPv6 address and a /56 delegated prefix by default.  The best way to verify is to do the following:

 

* Reboot your SMC

* Connected an IPv6 enabled computer to the SMC

* Visit http://test-ipv6.comcast.net

 

An IPv6 should appear on the page, if not then feel free to contact me offline.

 

John
