Re: Configuring ZyWall USG 200 for Comcast IPv6

On hold now... tech didn't seem to be up to speed with IPv6 support. I think he's reading the User Guide while I'm waiting...

So far, on my own, I've tried Pure IPv6 and Prefix Delegation and both bombed out. Kind of depressing as I read a Comcast thread here where everyone is posting about how IPv6 is working with their cheap, consumer grade routers (e.g., D-Link, Netgear).

No bueno.

Waiting for a callback from ZyXel Tier 2 Support.

Good you got their attention. I suspected that a tier level one guy would not be able to handle IPV6. Its one thing to tout compatibility in a general sense, quite another to tackle the various implementations in all the gear being used.

Hello,
I'm trying to get my USG 50 working with Comcast IPV6. Have you gotten any further with this?

Thanks.

I've been going back and forth with ZyXEL Tier 2 Tech Support for two months and no solution yet. Their engineers overseas (Taiwan?) looked at the problem and reported back that they were able to get IPv6 to work with their ISPs.

Just to be clear, I'm trying to get ZyXEL's Pure IPv6 implementation to work with Comcast as described in the USG 200's User Guide (the instructions in the User Guides for Pure IPv6 and Prefix Delegation IPv6 are identical across USG line - 50/100/200/300, etc.).

So I've followed the instructions exactly as stated in the guide for Pure IPv6 and I also tried Prefix Delegation. Neither work. After configuring, the Xfinity IPv6 Readiness Test gives me a score of 0 out of 10.

»test-ipv6.comcast.net/

None of ZyXEL's people in California have Comcast as an ISP so they haven't been able to test the USG series to see if they can configure it to work with Comcast's IPv6. I was told they all have either Verizon FiOS, Time Warner, or AT&T U-Verse.

It should work, but the problem is a knowledge gap in trying to get it configured properly for Pure IPv6 (I'm not interested in nor do I care about 6-to-4 tunneling).

The good news is they, ZyXEL, are now in contact with a Comcast engineer and are sending them a USG to try to determine what settings need to be changed in order to get it to work. They'll let me know if they find a solution.

That's all I have for now.

I should post in the BBR Comcast Forum to see if anyone has been able to successfully get a USG to work with Comcast's IPv6. But I'm too tired at the moment and it's probably a long shot anyway.

I for one am disappointed to learn of your experience with IPv6 and specifically the 2 month gap. ZyXEL should be ashamed VERY ashamed.

I was in contact with the Comcast Senior Network engineer last week via e-mail. Haven't heard anything back yet...

I have contacted ZyXEL but no one has called me back. Feel free to PM me and I will give you my contact info to forward on to them. Please open tickets with the vendor and send me the ticket numbers. I would like to get these issues resolved for everyone.

Ya, it's pretty frustrating. I have a Cisco RV042G with non-functioning IPv6 PD. Comcast has been working with Cisco on that one, too. But, not holding my breath for a fix anytime soon.

So, a ZyWall USG was my top alternative. Glad I found this thread before I wasted any more money.

Hopefully one of them can get their act together. Thanks to the folks from Comcast that are working directly with these companies.

Look into getting an P2812HNU or P2612HNU or P2601HN I got those they all do PD quite nicely

I got them running at home, with 2 different ISP's now, it was just plug in an enable more or less

They appear to all be ADSL CPE. No?

Not going to be of any use on Comcast cable.

The 2812 and 2612 got ethernet wan ports also. And a throughput of about 960Mbps in my ftp test.

I would not hold my breath as well, but I have been asking for a fix along with a weekly meeting with Cisco. I am really hopeful...

CISCO is in the process of dumping Linksys plus the Linksys group are very different [and segregated] from the CISCO group [plus CISCO have many specialized groups within groups] so I seriously doubt that any CISCO engineer will look at the RV0420 issues. Best to find out who the Linksys resources to contact for this type of issue --- once you find out the who to contact they are responsive
