Does anyone out there know if the residential gateway that comes with a FioS internet package has support for IPv6 addressing? And, if it does, does Verizon support IPv6 yet? World IPv6 Day is coming, and i'd like to be able to participate.

Well Verzion them selve has no plans to switch customers over to ipv6 capable routers right away as its hard to get on Wireless N router from them as well unless you are on a buisness plan.Now If you Turn off your wireless from the Verizon side and hook up a router switch to a open port on the verizon router\modem there should be no problem as thats how i do mine.Also there are only certain routers and that support Wireless N and IPv6 access and I will post some info here as well about that.

 

http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=767  <<<  Heres The Dlink one im using as Dlink and Cisco (linksys) are the only companys that support Ipv6 fully on certain models.

 

Heres another IPV6 Router >> http://www.dlink.com/products/?pid=737

 

only two i know of but was told there are two more dlink models that support it but i contacted dlink and they told that the two links i have posted here are the only fully compatible IPV6 routers availible.

 

Heres one of ciscos routers >> http://homestore.cisco.com/en-us/Routers/Linksys-E4200-MaximumPerformance-Wirelessn-router_stcVVprod...

 

You can use A tunnel to receive a IPV6 address which if you need help with that just ask.
