IPv6 Or Not?


I just ran the Comcast Connectivity Test (test-ipv6.comcast.net/index.html.en_US ). The message delivered was "No IPv6 detected. You appear to have no IPv6 at this time."

 

When I review the setup for IPv6 on my TP-Link AC1750 router, it shows a connection type of DHCPv6, an IPv6 address, a default gateway, and IPv6 DNS address.

 

Is IPv6 in use on my PC? Am I setup correctly? Why does the Comcast test disagree with the TP-Link setup?

Sounds like things are right ! That sometimes happens to me also with that CC test. Try this one and see what it says;

 

https://ipv6-test.com/ It should say 17 out of 20 if IPv6 is working correctly.

 

For a test, what does that test say with that computer connected directly to the cable modem (no router in the mix) ?

O/k without that test, it can't be isolated to being a Comcast issue, or your equipment.

Because of the physical configuration, bypassing the router is not possible.
