RE: IPv6 on SOHO routers?

I must be blind, but I don't recognize any brands there that support IPv6
(besides the Apple Airport).  I see the Linksys WRT54G, but I don't know
where they find the validation for IPv6 support, unless they mean DD-WRT.

Based on all the responses I received on and off list, it appears, that as
far as name brands recognized in the U.S., only Apple makes a SOHO router
that support IPv6.
