Re: [Business] IPv6 Availability

said by joako:

And I do not understand this because there's no clear information on HOW to use IPv6 with Comcast.

What would you like to see to help out with this?

said by joako:

1) How do you know if your area has IPv6?

Take a device what supports DHCPv6 and plug it into the cable modem to see if you get an IPv6 address. IE Windows Vista, Windows 7, or the latest version of Mac OS.

Or ping me via PM with your cable modem HFC\RF MAC address and I will check on this for you.

2) If your area does have it, and you have the correct modem and an IPv6 device, how do you use it? Just plug it in?

If you use IE Windows Vista, Windows 7, or the latest version of Mac OS directly behind the cable modem you would be good to go.

If you have a router you will need to check for DHCPv6-PD support and enable it. Do you have a router?
