IPv6 with MB8611

My setup is

  • Modem: MB8611
  • Router: Netgear Orbi RBR20

I set the Orbi's IPv6 setting to Auto Config, rebooted it as well as my modem, but no IPv6 address is detected at https://test-ipv6.comcast.net/. I chatted with an Xfinity agent, and they say my internet service supports IPv6, but my modem (MB8611) does not. Then I checked the MB8611 spec (https://www.motorola.com/us/mb8611/p) and it seems to support IPv6. I also found that even Xfinity says the modem supports IPv6 (from a list of compatible modems for my internet). Has anyone had a similar issue and/or got it working with IPv6?

Any help will be appreciated.

So, I contacted another agent. They admitted that previous information (MB8611 not supporting IPv6) is incorrect. The new agent says my area does not have IPv6 yet. So, no need to answer my post, but I still keep it in case anyone encounters the same issue as mine in the future.
