Or, another way to look at it;
You get IPv4 turned on automatically as well - and the only way to control IPv4 & IPv6 addressing being turned on or off is to put the modem in bridge mode and run your own router.
As for the firewall....it gets to those layers of security. Just like the choice between using the built-in Windows firewall vs Kaspersky Internet Security for your PC, you can have basic security for no additional cost, or you can have more security for more cost (ie. your own firewall that only you have access to & control).
The problem is Mirai. That is what happens when you do things exactly. like. this.
Not sure why you're bringing up a malware that is easily addressed by changing the default password on the Linux device when you first set it up.
Because, as I've been trying to point out, the problem isn't me and you. We're fine. We can disable IPV6 via DHCP, add our own firewalls, and secure our things..
Mirai wasn't a problem because of people like us.
Mirai was a problem becuase 99.9% of people just buy devices and plug them in and never touch them after.

Does this all look normals for docsis 3.1?

what do you guys make of this?
@RogersDave I have an issue with the coda 4582 where I have to keep resetting it to stay connected. I woke up this morning and everything said it was connected but nothing worked. Reset and was fine. Then came home this afternoon and same thing. Reset then fine. Also I have noticed my devices connected that are wired to the Ethernet ports drop connection and wont reconnect unless again I reset this modem.
I would goto the closest Rogers store and exchange the modem.
How do you disable IPv6 via DHCP?
Sorry, perhaps I oversimplified 🙂
If you run your own DHCP server, you can have it not give you IPV6 addresses to any devices on your network, effectively blocking them from using IPV6.
Or, at least, that's the theory that I've heard here. I decided to test it, and to my surprise it doesn't appear to be that way.
I have the DHCP on the modem (in regular router mode) turned off, and my own DHCP running internally. I have a laptop which I just turned on IPV6, and it's still getting a usable address.
Does this mean that, for IPV6, effectively, we're on one big open network segment, and the Rogers' servers are directly able to respond to DHCP requests from inside my network?
