One of two things can be going on here..  1) there is a AMP or splitter in the mix that doesnt support over 750, and that has happen 2) the node is on a differnet cable-mac or CMTS that is not turned up yet..

Maybe DOCSIS 3.1 isn't yet available in your area ??

Are you subscribed to their gigabit speed-tier ?

Yes systemwide IPv6 support for about the past 4 years, about a year before I started with ARRIS..

IPv6 and DOCSIS 3.1 questions

1. Where do I go to see if Xfinity/Comcast has IPv6 in my area?  I've searched and searched and searched for a page that can answer that simple question for me and I can't find one.  And no, comcast6.net isn't showing that info anymore.

 

2. Why is my modem (Arris SB8200) only running in DOCSIS 3.0 mode?  The 2 middle lights on the modem are green, indicating 3.0, and they should be blue, indicating 3.1.
