Looked at the manual, the only thing I could find regarding IPv6
connectivity was an option

IP Versions
 * IPv4 Only. This option utilizes IPv4 on the Internet and local
 * Dual-Stack IP. This option utilizes IPv4 over the Internet and IPv4
   and IPv6 on the local network.

No support for native connectivity on the WAN side apparently and no
user-defined tunnels, so my guess is 6to4. Odd that you can manually
specify the LAN IPv6 address, but well. Latest firmware readme talks
about 6to4-only as well.

Apple Airport Extreme can do 6to4 and manual proto-41 at least, the only
other commercial SOHO product I could find that (according to the
data-sheet) supports IPv6 is the Buffalo WZR-AG300NH. No hit in the
(very brief) manual or the knowledge base though, so no idea how far
this support is going.

Best bet is still a WRT54G with OpenWRT :-\
