2007_03_15_2i_smallWell you might want to check out the FRITZ!Box solutions from AVM. They currently have 2 modem/routers available for ADSL2+ and VDSL. The WLAN 7270 and 7570 VDSL


There are public beta firmwares available for IPv6 support for the models mentioned above. Those firmware’s can be found on the FRITZ!Box IPv6 Lab website.


With the new firmware the FRITZ!Box can be used right away on provider lines that support IPv6, supporting native IPv6 over PPP. What is more, 6to4 technology has been implemented to allow the use of IPv6 on conventional IPv4 lines.


Features at a glance

* Allows IPv6 to be used in the home network and the Internet
* IPv6CP support for native IPv6 connections over PPP on special lines
* 6to4 support for connecting IPv6 over conventional IPv4 Internet connections
* IPv6 – SixXS Tunnel Broker support ( http://www.sixxs.net)
* Dual-stack concept for simultaneous use of IPv4 and IPv6


Please do take notice of their warning on the IPv6 Lab site:

Important note
This lab firmware is a beta version. We tested the software in standard environments before making it available to the public, but it may still result in malfunctions. AVM will not be liable for any damages that arise from the use of the lab version.

As you can see the IPv6 support is extensive and will most likely provide you with the kind of IPv6 connectivity you need.
