Nope. It's all DHCP. It may very well be a configuration error on Comcast's end, though, as this just became active today.

Not to go too OT but since it was brought up twice in this topic.

DHCPv6 does not/cannot specify the gateway address (not in RFC) This is done with router advertisements, it's what they are there for. Thus you get a LL address.

Even if it was decided to push a gateway address via DHCPv6, you'd still push a LL gateway as pushing a GUA or ULA would require ND.

If you have to do a static route or ping6 your gateway ...etc, you can still do so by scoping the interface.

eg. ping6 fe80::201:5cff:fe32:1481%eth0 (eth0 being WAN int).
