There's a difference between a DHCP server (IPv4) and a DHCPv6 server (IPv6).
So, you could disable a DHCP server on your network, preventing clients from getting an IPv4 address, yet still have a DHCPv6 server operational.
There are multiple ways to get an IPv6 address, manually and automatically.
For Automatic assignment, devices use the Neighbor Discovery Protocol. Through the ICMPv6 Router Advertisement, clients learn of IPv6 address assignment: either StateLess Address AutoConfiguration (SLAAC) or Stateful DHCPv6.
So, with a RA set to SLAAC-only, clients could get an IPv6 address, even if both your DHCP server & your DHCPv6 server were disabled. With a RA set to DHCPv6-only, clients would only get an IPv6 address if your DHCPv6 server was running. With a RA set to both, some clients would get both a SLAAC address & a DHCPv6 address (Android only uses SLAAC, Win10 uses both).
Thus, in your case, disabling your DHCP servers (IPv4) still allows the client to get an RA from the gateway, and hence how the client is getting an IPv6 address.

Just a simple question - are we still in beta testing of the CODA-4582 as a whole, or just a particular version of firmware?
Is their a production firmware version going out on the various Hitron Devices, starting from the oldest to the newest devices.
I ask this because this thread has been going on for a long time, we have had various threads on the various versions of Hitron out there, and I have also lost track of just what we are looking at in various devices and versions.
We seem to be wandering all over the place on these threads, ranging from UDP issues, latency issues, download speeds, upload speeds, the move to max 30 up from 50 up in the early days and rationalle of this change (limitation of the modem?), WIFI standards related to 2.4, the hidden SSID (which I think I read recently in a research that the hidden SSID allows for the directionality focusing of signals as it can direct the signal from the return signal of the hidden SSID and balance it to get the best direction off the multiple antennas.)
And although there has been a lot of speed and the issue of 2.4 WIFI and overlap on channels, I have learned that if you want to go to the lower speeds (no we don't all need these higher speeds), and on the two lower packages, they provide the old modems that did not have dual band, so you will need to upgrade to a higher speed package to get the modem with a dual band WIFI, or buy your own router (me, I would just buy a router given my distaste for the Hitron routers, given their obvious limited capabilities - you get what we pay for - a low end router and modem), and discussions on security, firewalling, and IPv6 versus 4.
Any possibility of getting the current production and beta firmware levels on each of the modem/gateways that Rogers is providing to us?
@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.
Had a similar issue when I got the CODA. What firmware are you on?
Hey @4kgigabitguy, do you game on the CODA? How's the performance (i.e is it laggy, or responsive?).
Yes I am gaming with the CODA modem as of 3 weeks ago. My area is D3.1 enabled & I have been doing testing since I got the modem. I have CSGO & LoL on my Macbook pro but generally only game on PC for testing purposes. I'm pretty busy so I don't have a chance to game as frequently as some as the other folks on here.
I am also doing a bunch of speed testing / overall testing. Look out for my post in the feedback thread as I will posting some results from various devices (wired & wireless)
What games are you playing & how is performance ? I have folks internally that I can share feedback & am happy to test more games out.

What are you guys getting ?
I believe it's the latest firmware. It's .24
To confirm the if symptoms were the same as mine...Does your problem sound like below ?
From what I recall the issue only affected WIFI. In one scenario my wifi devices weren't working but ethernet was still working.
Is it the same for you ?
