I seem to no longer be able to get a /60 ipv6 block. This has worked great for a couple years now

I was reworking my network for work and was disconnected for a couple days. When I plugged back in I suddenly discovered that not only am not receiving a /60 address but I appear to no loger be getting an address at all.  Has something changed? I've had ipv6 /60 space for at least a couple years which made it great for routing stuff in my network.  I'm assuming since I am trying to set hints for a /60 that I'm not being given anything since I don't even get an interface address at this point. 

 

So, has something changed?

To confirm about IPv6, do you get 10 for 10 with this test ?;

Why would I possibly get 10/10 on a site checking for ipv6 configuration when my post literally said I'm NOT getting any ipv6 configuration.  So no, I get 0/10.

Do you have an Arris SB8200 by chance?

 

I have the same issue as you, and it began with the most recent firmware update for the SB8200 in March. Just my guess based on timing is that it might be related.
