Re: [IPv6] Lost my IPv6 IP again....

Given that's nearly a month's worth of snapshot builds behind, the pfSense devs may suggest you try the latest snapshot. Unfortunately I have yet to find a changelog for the snapshots so the system may just autobuild whatever it has even if nothing has changed.

Also, what chipset is your WAN interface? You may want to see if there's any IPv6 bugs with the driver for that chipset or even the chip iteslf. More than likely the pfSense team hasn't made any modifications to the driver, so you'll be looking for bugs with FreeBSD 8.3-p5. If it's a Realtek, you may just want to consider upgrading to Intel NICs; Realtek NICs haven't been known to be that solid, especially the older ones.

I will probably re-install with a newer beta build here soon. Knowing its still in beta, a lot of changes could have been made.

As far as the actual NIC of my WAN interface, its a D-Link card. I don't know more then that without opening it up and taking it out to look at it (unless there is a way to see that from either the web interface, or some command line tool). My LAN interface is using a 3Com card. Again, without opening up my unit and taking the card out, I cannot give more info. What I got was printed on the cards themselves that I can read where I plug the network cables in.

However, knowing that it was working, and after a reboot of both my modem and the pfsense box, and not being able to pull an IPv6 IP, makes me think that something may be going on with Comcast's side of things. Again, I have not re-tested a desktop directly into my modem to verify this. If I get the chance today, I'll do that to verify things on the Comcast side are still working.
