Re: [Business] IPv6 Availability

said by AVonGauss:

1. Residential
2. Business w/ Customer Owned (i.e. DHCP)
3. Business w/ SMC or Netgear (i.e. Static)
4. Business w/ non-HFC installation

From what I understand, #1 and #2 cases already have dynamic IPV6, and probably won't get static. #4 probably also already has static I believe, especially since they get straight up metro ethernet now according to the 305 install thread.

So I think this only applies to group #3.

The next question is, does Comcast expect to have to replace everyone's SMCD3G modem to hand out static IPV6.
Since we don't have an answer on this yet, I am going to predict the answer will be yes. SMC has had plenty of time to upgrade the firmware...
