Implementing IPv6

I apologize in advance for being behind the times. I have some basic questions about IPv6:

 

  1. How can I find out if IPv6 is available in my service area?
  2. How can I find out if my modem supports IPv6?
  3. Does Comcast publish a guide to switching to IPv6?

 

Thanks for your help..

It's available everywhere.

 

How can I find out if my modem supports IPv6?

 

Pretty much everything is IPv6 capable these days. What is the make and model number is it ?

 

Does Comcast publish a guide to switching to IPv6?

Thanks for your help. My modem (eMTA, actually) is the Arris TM822G/CT.

That eMTA supports IPv6. Are you using a router too ? If so, what is the make and model number ?

Re: Implementing IPv6

I'm planning to upgrade my router, however, my existing router is an Asus RT-N56U, which supports IPv6 (in my version of the router: B1.)

 

Thanks for your help.
