Telstra Gen 2: Network Mode: No Ipv6 Forwarding Table

Product Name
Technicolor DJA0231
Software Version
18.1.c
Firmware Version
18.1.c.0585-MR7.1-RA
Hardware Version
VCNT-A

Not much changed with the modem settings other than a port forward and the addition of a static IP lease, soon to expire.

Clicked the bridging mode button but didn't confirm. Sometime later noticed the Ipv6 Forwarding Table not present. Had a really good idea, why not put the modem in bridging mode, so that when we revert to Network Mode, the Ipv6 Forwarding Table will return.

Unfortunately, didn't check the docs as to what would happen:

Spoiler
The following cards (and functionality) will no longer be available after switching to bridged mode:
Content Sharing
Devices
Diagnostics
Firewall
Internet Access
Mobile
Telephony
WAN Services

Oh dear, the Devices meant no Telstra Gateway at all. So ended up hard resetting the physical modem unit. Fortunately, the Ipv6 Forwarding Table has returned.

Crowd Support? What about support for the masses?
