Re: New routers handling IPv6

I can tell you this much: there's not a lick of IPv6 in the firmware for my Netgear WGR614, but due to its merely bridging the WiFi and the Ethernet, it seems to work just fine using IPv6 over WiFi. It passes NSes, NAs, RSes, and RAs just fine, as well as the "main" traffic. However, aint never gonna be able to admin the thing over IPv6.

My "main" router is an old Linux PC, so it's quite a bit more capable in terms of IPv6.

It's all in economics. Lack of general demand means lack of money spent on programming services to make it possible. It's classic chicken/egg. Finally with v4 address space exhaustion, there is slightly more pressure, but there won't be a lot of pressure until all the RIRs run out. (How close is ARIN anyway?)

I think just RIPE and ARIN running out will be all the pressure that's needed. APNIC is already out.

RIPE will reach its last /8 (basically out) in Sept. Many of the remaining address will be given out for CGNs and NAT64 (transition mechanisms), so they'll essentially be out then. They've already started allocating of 5/8 which is used by Hamachi. Would suck to be getting any new IPs from them now.

My guess for ARIN is Q2 of 2013 for exhaustion.

no one is questioning IPv4... Natively, is in hardware. Please let me know which consumer grade router provides IPv6, natively.

In software is NOT Native.

By that definition of "Native" there are also no consumer routers that do native IPv4 either. (They all have CPUs that load firmware to do their IP stuff)
