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

You do know what beta test software is, don't you?

From the crash log, my guess would be that your pfsense box was not able to establish a new IPv6 connection when the WAN IPv6 address changed.

FWIW, my Comcast supplied Netgear WNR1000v2-VC router also loses IPv6 connectivity somewhat randomly (~one week intervals) because the WAN IPv6 address changes, and the router's firmware can't seem to handle that. A reboot always wakes it up, but yes, it is a PITA, and that is why that router has been demoted to being a guest router.

Yes I do! The joys of running beta software.

I did go back and look at the crash log, and saw the same thing you did.

So, I'll submit it to the developers, and then look at maybe upgrading to a newer version of the Beta in the near future. Looks like they make an updated build at least once a day.

I'll also reboot the PFSense box later tonight. I have a feeling that will fix the issue until it happens again.

A little bit ago, I rebooted my PFSense box.

Here is where I'm now at.

First, the status of my WAN_DHCP6 gateway is now showing online. the gateway listed is the same as it was before: fe80::201:5cff:fe3d:4e41

However, things still don't work. When I look at my interfaces screen, a few things are missing.

On the WAN interface (rl0) I used to have the following show up, and it does not any more

IPv6 address: 2001:558:6033:ad:176:75ee:c24b:3d49
Subnet mask IPv6: 128

On the LAN interface (xl0) I used to have the following show up, and it does not any more

IPv6 address: 2601:d:4c00:17:250:4ff:fe21:713d
Subnet mask IPv6: 64

The rest of the information that was present matches what I had back on 01/06/2013.

So, not sure if I need to reboot my cable modem as well, or if there is something else going on.

NetDog See Profile, I've PM'ed you my cable modem info so you can check things on the CMTS side, in case something may have changed there.
