@RogersDave and Folks,
My 1st observation...
The manual DNS resolver settings still will not accept DNSv6 entries
Thanks howi, I've added this to the issue list.
Would you also be able to confirm if defining a manual DNSv4 address has any impact on IPv6 connectivity (it did in the past)?
It is fine as before... getting pings and able to reach IPv6 addresses. The problem you are referring is affecting the CGN3 at my parents with the current firmware (126.96.36.199?) that I must disable the manual DNS settings with using the auto only.
Just a quick note on the ESP/IPSec slowdown issue - I upgraded to 500u (no gigabit in my area yet) and the 188.8.131.52 firmware for the 3552 has the same issue - very fast transfers unless ESP/IPv6 is in use.
Received the .20 firmware, however a few hours after it was updated, I started to receive connection issues in LoL and voip applications. Ran a couple of speed tests while that was happening but it showed that the pings were fine. I'm confused to what is happening..
When you have time, log into your modem, navigate to the STATUS ...... DOCSIS EVENT page and have a look for one of the following sequences:
a. CMTS-MAC=00:17:10 which indicates that you are connected to a Casa Systems Cable Modem Termination System (CMTS), or;
b. CMTS-MAC=00:12:43 which indicates that you are connected to a Cisco Systems CMTS.
c. CMTS-MAC=00:05:00 which indicates that you are connected to a Cisco Systems CMTS.
d. CMTS-MAC=00:1f:ca which indicates that you are connected to a Cisco Systems CMTS.
Please let me know what CMTS you are on now. Then have a look at my comments on the bottom of the following thread and into the next page. That might explain what you are seeing with LOL and VOIP. I would be interested in knowing if you see similar results for the online ping in LOL, cycling down, peaking upwards, cycling down, etc, etc.
Thats a Cisco Systems CMTS. Can you run a trace to somewhere, google.ca for example, then when that is complete, ping the second line address, just after the modem address. Type in:
ping xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -n 250
When that is complete, copy the whole test and paste it into a pm to me so I can have a look at it, ping by ping 🙂
