Lost IPv6 - DG1670A

Tired of waiting for the SB6183 to get IPv6, I leased a DG1670A from TWC a couple of weeks ago.

 

It had IPv6 working great until yesterday. Now, it's gone.

 

Before I call TWC, has anyone seen a similar problem?

Update: I now have an IPv6 address again, but no IPv6 connectivity, after rebooting the modem.

This is actually worse.

what is your zip code?

 Is the 1670 in bridge mode with your own good router after it?

 

Why do you need IPv6?

Trying to figure this all out and came across your post. Looking at buying a cabel modem and wifi router. Why wouldn't I want an IPv6?  Right now i'm looking at the Arris Surfboard Model SB6141 but then came accross the SB6183. Lots to learn, quite overwhelming.

Careful with the SB6183, TWC won't provision IPv6 for it at this time, and it's uncertain when (if ever).

Tell us more about your set up and your location. I'm in LA, currently on standard (non bridged) configuration with IPv6 working although I did have to double check it was still here.

It came back on its own last night, around 2am, when the modem rebooted itself.

 

Case closed.

see what was at 2 am in the error/ events...

Was there a SW download from nms or something like that?
