The update you sent is lovely, except I can tell you that the one (also an Arris, running DOCSIS 3.0) which was installed in late October in my house in Washington simply does not run v6 with the pre-installed load.  Now, is there some firmware upgrade which could fix this?  Maybe, but it sure would be nice if the folks who answer the phone in support could direct me to someone who has heard of this technology.  So no, as I said before, Comcast has *not* removed the v6 barrier here.  I'd like it to "just work", please.
