SB6120 Firmware Updated (7/19/12)

Click for full size
Click for full size
After a brief outage, I checked my 6120's config page.

There is a new tab called "Open Source" that just lists all of the open source libraries that the modem is using.

The firmware got updated to the following:
SB_KOMODO-1.0.6.6-SCM00-NOSH

Also I noticed this under configuration:
DOCSIS MIMO IPv4 Only
Modem's IP Mode IPv6 Only

Anyone else get this update yet?
If so, notice any other changes?

Re: SB6120 Firmware Updated

I've seen a couple of reports here at DSLR that this version is rolling out but I haven't seen it myself (Danbury, CT) yet.

I'm hoping it's going to lead to native IPV6 but I have no evidence to support that hope.

Maybe they are slowly rolling out to select areas. I am not sure of the pattern though. My friend in the next township over does not have this version yet.

It looks like a really good step to IPv6. Maybe this is that final "push".

I rebooted mine today and got it. Was wondering why my Send/Receive light were blinking after a reboot then it rebooted on it's own.

Re: SB6120 Firmware Updated

I was running IPv6 back in the beginning of June before the firmware rollout so I dunno if the two are related.

Since the firmware upgrade I actually noticed a 2db drop in my downstream signal. Went from +7 to +5. Has to be a coincidence right ?

My upstream dropped (down to 29db), and downstream raised, lol.

Maybe just some tuning?

I had to reboot my SB6121 modem today, but it still shows the same old "SB612X-1.0.3.3-SCM00-NOSH" version here (Monmouth County, NJ) though.

I thought there was a good chance I would get the new firmware, as Mike Wolf, who is just south of me in the Toms River/Ocean County, NJ system, has said his modem got it.

Is the update anything to do with ipv6 deployment?

No, at least not it's main purpose (it does show a couple more IPv6 settings, as always controlled by the cofig file, nothing for the end user.
Just a more general update that shows the credits for open source components, and maybe fixes a few things( they've had almost 2 years)

Yea, I was going to say, it has been quite a long time since I had my last firmware update. ~2 years

Motorola doesn't release the changelogs to the public, unfortunately.
