Netgear CG3000DCR is EOL. What now for static IPv4 and IPv6 prefix delegation?
Hi, in 2016 I enrolled in the Business Starter (25/5) plan so I could have two things:
- a static IPv4
- a routable static IPv6 prefix of /56, so I could have more than 16 /64 segments
...and was set up with a Cisco DPC3941B.
But I didn't realize that in a few months, the one piece of hardware that supports proper prefix delegation would reach end of life, with no suitable replacement.
- I've confirmed that prefix delegation does work when the 3941B is in pseudo-bridge mode.
- I've already been through over a dozen chats, phone calls and truck rolls.
- There are dozens of like posts on this forum that were solved only with what is now end-of-life hardware.
- No one in support has been able to tell me unequivocally "Static IPv4 with proper multi-subnet, routable IPv6 prefix delegation definitely works on the 3941B. I've seen it a million times. This is a you problem."
It would be appreciated if anyone can corroborate my network and hardware issue. I really don't want to start from square one again. ("Is your gateway on fire? Is your coax plugged into a pumpkin?") On top the of countless hours lost over two years, I had to sit at home this week and wait for my 3941B to not be replaced with a non-existent CG3000DCR.
