Description

I have a netgear cm1000 modem and for some reason with pfsense I cannot get an IPV6 allocation. I have plugged in my laptop directly into the modem and I get ipv6 perfectly fine. I had an arris 6141 but i keep loosing connectivity..everything is fine and then it goes to a 192.168.x.x address..waits a couple of minutes and goes back)..the cm1000 ipv4 works fine but I cant get an ipv6 behind pfsense. The machine is a home brew:
2.4.5-RELEASE-p1 (amd64)
built on Tue Jun 02 17:51:17 EDT 2020
FreeBSD 11.3-STABLE
Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2120T CPU
4 gigs of ram. the only packages i use is ntopng. Ram usage hovers around 50%.
UPDATE i cant get an ipv6 delegation no matter what now. if I plug a laptop directly into the modem it works fine. it was working earlier in the morning..except for the connection instability. I will attach two packet captures that reflect the models of the two modems I have tried.
The captures are a bit bit so I have them on dropbox: https://www.dropbox.com/s/m9v4mr9b8ukmhfr/pfsense.7z?dl=0

this is not a support request.,.not a discussion. This is what i consider a bug as i have tried two modems..yet with a laptop I get ipv6. Why does this not qualify as a bug since there's obviously an issue with pfsense itself? That's what a bug is..a problem within pfsense itself.

There is no evidence that it is a bug -- which is why you must discuss it first on the forum. "It works here but not there" does not prove it is a bug.

i disagree as i have already done a fair amount of trouble shooting..and this is NOT the only location I am hitting this..the other place is with an actual PFSense appliance. I would not have opened this had i not been confident it is a bug. I'll post this on the forums..or pay for TAC...thanks.
