I now have the Rocket modem installed and getting IPv6 addresses.  However, one issue I've noticed is I can't port forward SSH (port 22).  

I have never heard of that issue. However, I notice that your modem is still running firmware 4.4.8.16 after swapping your DPC3825.

 

Give it a few days and it will get upgraded to 4.5.8.16 or newer. If you still have this issue after that, I will investigate.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

One other issue is "Multiple SSID Settings".  On other access points I've worked with, that means multiple SSIDs on the same access point, with different VLANs.  It could also be local LAN vs Guest access.  However, on this Rocket it appears to only mean different SSIDs on each band with no provision for VLANs or guest WiFi.  I also don't see anyway for a guest WiFi to be allowed only Internet access.  These have been common features for years.  For example, I have a TP-Link access point, which I can configure for multiple VLANs and SSIDs, with one SSID per VLAN.  I bought it over 4 years ago.

 

Is there something I'm missing?

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Nope.  The guest account can only be accessed by using the USB setup key, or by Tech Support.  The multiple SSIDs, which I believe are still in the firmware can only be accessed by Tech Support.  So, you can can call Tech Support to access either one for you and make the changes that you would like.  Personal opinion, for anyone requiring guest accounts or multiple SSIDs, you're better off buy a router which can provide those functions.  That you have full access and control over them.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

Funny thing.  I looked into that USB key that came with the Rocket and found it's for the Cisco modem I just took back!  Good to see the people at Rogers are on their toes!  😉

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

That key has been around for a while.  I personally don't recommend using it as I managed to bork a serviceable CGN3 just by attempting to use it as an experiment one day.  Apparently it works, but in the words of the CSR that I was talking with at the time, "throw it out", and I do happen to agree with that.   What I found is that the changes that it made were outside of the factory reset capabilities, which at the time turned out to be a pain.  Maybe it works brilliantly with a Cicso modem and is supposed to work with the Hitron's as well, but I don't think many people have had much use or success with it.

I've had a coupld of them before and I usually just scratch "Rogers" off and reformat them.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status with CGN3

@DaveM,

I am just here at my folks and checking on the CGN3 (firmware 4.2.4.6)… IPv6 gateway support shows up after the factory reset.

So far my observations… It will not accept DNSv6 addresses like the CGN3ACSMR in the maunal settings. Moreover, if it uses the manual settings with the v4 resolvers, the gateway would not work with the IPv6 routing as well. As soon as I turn DNS settings back to auto, routing is back to normal.

Re: Rogers IPv6 Status

On firmware 4.5.8.20 you can set the guest network account up in the GUI, so no more USB sticks, or calling Rogers to set it up. They also let you select 40Mhz or 20Mhz Channel Width on the 2.4Ghz Network, however 99% of people should leave it on 20Mhz. You can Google why selecting 40Mhz on 2.4Ghz is a bad idea.

Call me cynical, but I feel like 99% of people who discover the setting will end up setting it at 40MHz... 

 

(... even though, as you correctly pointed out, it is a bad idea)

I'm unable to access the IPv6 internet from within my lan; routing halts after the 3rd hop. @RogersDave
