Re: [Other] IPv6 Ready Home Network?

said by medbuyer:

and I don't think the switches need to be IPv6 ready...

A dumb layer 2 switch, no. Switches operate a step up on the OSI model at Layer 2 so it doesn't care what version of IP you're running or if you are even running an IP-based network.

If it's a managed layer 2 switch or a layer 3 switch/router, maybe. It will still work probably but the management interface and/or routing may not.

Shouldn't that be a step down? (Layer 3 to Layer 2)

Depends. Are the numbers little endian or big endian?
