    Better titled "A few sections of the internet industry in a couple of countries make first steps toward world IPv6", but less snappy.

    There are very few routers "out there" in consumer homes which support IPv6, perhaps just a few percent.

    I seems only the newer routers are in this group. I know my Linksys 4200e does support IPv6 and also both 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz band and N band, but it is a relatively new router. My router I replaced did not, and it was only about 5 years old.

    My two year old Netgear router recently had a firmware update that added IPV6 support. You might want to check for a firmware update for your router.

    Well, here's an interesting exercise: Find out how many routers this firm sells in total, then tick the IPv6 box and find how many support this.
    It's quite a few more than when I last tried, a few months ago, but still a small proportion.
    BTW my Billion 7800N supports IPv6.
