Re: IPv6 on SOHO routers?

The only ADSL one listed "Billion 7402R2" doesn't _actually_ do IPv6 yet, but it might if they release software for it!
Which would be nice as we sell them to customers and would love to magically turn on IPv6 to them one day.

The only IPv6 ADSL router I'm aware of, that I can buy in Australia, is the Cisco 857/877 series (which work quite nicely I have to say :-)
(Some earlier Cisco 800 series ADSL routers will work, but aren't currently available).

A friend of mine who works for a company that owns another company that sells consumer CPE said "Well, this is a volume business. Why release a feature that isn't being demanded much yet, when we could do it later and sell you ANOTHER CPE to replace the one you just bought?".

Bah. And people wonder why I'm cynical.
