Re: R7000 dropping IPv6 connection

Greetings,

R7000 - 1.0.9.42 - Works seamlessly with Comcast and IPv6.  Connection is 100% stable and reliable

 

I cannot speak for FW after .42.

 

Working on my R8000P as well with 1.4.1.30 - also 100% stable and reliable.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

~Comcast 1 Gbps/50 Mbps SB8200 > R8000P

~R6400 FW:1.0.1.52 ~Orbi-AC3000 FW:2.5.1.8

Re: R7000 dropping IPv6 connection

What settings are you using for Ipv6 and comcast for the r7000? I'm using Auto Detect and Auto Config. Thanks
