I would do that as well, hook up your Windows 7 PC and make sure you get a IPv6 address. Then you know your area CMTS is good to go, put your router in place..

Well, I went ahead and did that. From what I can tell, things are working the way they should be, and I have IPv6! :)

I powered off my desktop, and unplugged it from my switch. I then reset my cable modem with the little pin button on the back.

Once the cable modem was back up, I plugged my desktop directly into it, and powered it back on.

Upon getting into Windows 7, I did an ipconfig. That information is posted above for review.

Seeing both what appears to be a valid IPv4 and an IPv6 IP, I then go to run a test over at test-ipv6.com. Those results are posted as well.

Knowing I got 10/10, I would think life is good! :)

EDIT: I did a few more tests. I know it is WAY to early to do this, but I turned off IPv4 (unchecked the box on the network card, and disabled "Microsoft ISATAP Adapter and "Teredo Tunneling Pseudo-Interface" in device manager).

I added two new pictures. One shows an ipconfig with just an IPv6, and the other shows a ping and a tracert to google.

Outside of the following two sites, not much else worked. Which, is expected, as most places don't have things setup for only IPv6 just yet.

http://ipv6.google.com/
http://ipv6.speedtest.comcast.net/
 

So, as far as I can tell, I can get both IPv4 and IPv6 IP's from Comcast now.

Now, its on to my router! :) If I run into issues or questions with that, I'll start a new thread.
