Re: [Business] SMCD3G - New Firmware - 3.1.6.53 / IPV6

and now with the modem ready, how do I get an IPv6 subnet (/60 or larger).

Do you still have the newest firmware and are you getting your full speeds? What speed tier are you on?

Thanks, I've always had "Disable Gateway Smart Packet Detection" checked, and still had the poor upload issue.

Good memory, I did end up calling and had them reset the password. It's interesting that reverting to 1.4.0.49.7-CCR seems to break the login every time.

I still have Firmware 3.1.6.53 (my hardware version is 1.01 got the modem about 6 months ago).

I do have 25/5 MBit and usually get a bit above 30 MBit down and maybe 5-7MBit up.

Wait what? do you have the old 22/5 or the new 27/7? There is no 25/5 business class profile. Sounds like you're on 27/7 with the capped PB if I had to guess.

Can you run the same test, check firmware, do a speedtest, reboot, check firmware again, speedtest and post the data. If you have the same issues please PM me your RF MAC. We are tracking the users that are having upstream issues with the .53 code.

My speed or firmware version didn't change after the reboot. I am not having an issue with the .53 firmware after the "Disable Gateway Smart Packet Detection" setting got checked.

Did all SMCD3G modems get the new firmware? Ours has been up for over 80 days. If I reset it will I get the new firmware? I wouldn't mind testing to see if we have the upload speed issue.

Edit: I just reset my modem and didn't get the update. I guess they either haven't deployed it to my area yet or removed it.

Why has this been so problematic anyway? Is SMC just incompetent? Other Docsis3 CPE has been able to do IPv6 just fine for ages now.

Other DOCSIS 3 gateways? I don't think that any of the Comcast approved gateway boxes (residential or business class) currently support IPv6 when in router/gateway mode. OTOH, even the SMCD3G-CCR will support IPv6 in bridge mode.

Standard requirements say it needs to work, so if you put a static IPv6 address on both sides and can ping that works right? Well not really what about DHCPv6, DHCPv6-PD, or IA_PD options. I could go on, we have teams that double and triple check everything works before the code has approval from Comcast.

Once a new device is supported for IPv6 on the CPE and is pushed nationally to the field we update »mydeviceinfo.comcast.net/ right away.

PS.. Gateways or eRouters are coming soon..

Looks like Comcast rolled out version 3.1.6.54 to us this morning. Not yet pulling an IPv6 address though. I just did a speed test and we're still getting the full 50/10 speeds.

Any word on the Netgear Biz device IPv6 support? Not that it will work for me since I'm on a Cisco 10k, but just curious!

Very good, I've not seen 3.1.6.54, but hopefully they've addressed the speed issue that I was experiencing. And I'll look forward to validating it once it is made available in my area.

Unless there is a major problem with an existing firmware, most Comcast Business firmware upgrades are "attrition" based, not force pushed. The means that you usually don't get the new firmware unless you reboot the gateway.

Besides that, in this case the new SMC firmware is for IPv6 compatibility which still is not going to work for the immediate future unless you are one of the customers who are in the beta test.

I can now confirm 3.1.6.54 has appeared to fix the upstream speed issue that I had originally experienced with 3.1.6.53.

Why the differences in the firmware? I have the same router as you and have the 1.4.0.49.7-CCR firmware.

Seems like a totally different firmware than what is loaded on yours.

Not sure on the significance when the firmware numbers are jumping from 1.4.0.49.7 to 3.1.6.54 (my guess would be significant enough changes). But prior to today I was still on 1.4.0.49.7-CCR.

Are any of you guys on the 3.1.6.54 firmware pulling IPv6 addresses yet? Still nothing here... I guess they haven't upgraded our CMTS yet.

You're probably one of the lucky ones (like me ) on a Crapco Cisco 10k. I had heard "middle of the year" at one point, but then I heard "by the end of the year" for the 10ks. Sigh.

No IPv6 addresses yet, as the CMTS serving my area is a Cisco one.
