Re: Just got a new firmware on my SBG6580!

said by bluepoint:

In the approved motorola Docsis 3 customer device list, SBG6580 is not listed as IPv6 compliant only SB6141 is. Will it be supported with firmware upgrade?

There is a an issue with that page because for one the SBG6580 is newer than the SB5101 model and also motorola has mentioned on their website that the SBG6580 is a IPv6 supportable device. More than likely TWC has not certified it on their network for IPv6 and it is in testing right now for the SBG6580 with a few customers and employees.

Good to know moto SBG6580 is IPv6 compliant, it makes sense going forward. Do you have an idea when TWC transitions to IPv6?

no I don't but I believe they are planning on launching it on all 30/5 and 50/5 modems before the end of the year.

Question - I got the update last night as well and now the wireless radio has come back on. I am in bridge mode and I see no way to actually disable the radio. Am I stuck with it now?

Well Okay, that's getting close. I wonder what happened to those IPv6 beta testers that were asked in this forum? Are you guys still testing?

I didn't realize this, but somehow this update broke my router being in Bridged mode. I had to put the SBG6508 back in DHCP / NAPT Mode in order to get back out.

I figured out the solution (not that hard) and posted it in my original thread here: »[TWC] SBG6850 - Bridge mode worked for a year, now it doesn't ?! (5th post)

Hope this helps someone else.

Rebooted my modem and it grabbed the update. Looks like I would have eventually gotten it anyway since there seems to be scheduled downtime on Thursday night.

Actually, my AirPort Extreme seems to pick up a 6to4 tunnel now. No native IPv6 yet, though. And it's sending all my IPv6 traffic through Sweden. /goes back to he.net tunnel

THANK YOU SO MUCH! I work from home too and woke up this morning to find my internet not working. I checked the modem and noticed that the wireless indicator was now on, where it had been disabled in the past. To add to my confusion we had an earthquake overnight and I thought the settings may have reset to default with a power outage or something like that. So I logged into the modem and tried to follow the steps I had done to get it working in bridge mode when it was first set up but as soon as I disabled NAPT, all of the settings disappeared. Multiple resets later I was still getting nowhere and then I found this post. Again, thanks a ton!
