I would like to upgrade my current wireless router to an one that supports IPv6 and 802.11n. I want to do 6in4 tunnels for IPv6 to Hurricane Electric for my tunnel service and I have computers that have 802.11n. Currently I have the Actiontec (Verizon) MI424-WR wireless router with 10/100 ports. Can I get this through Verizon? I know I can go buy a Wireless router that can provide this on the outside, but want to ensure that this doesn't mess up my tv services. I have the three services currently on FIOS. TV, Internet and phone. So the router controls the TV settop boxes also.

There are a number of options for running your own router.

You should review the following FAQ for the advantages and disadvantages of each configuration:

 What are the tradeoffs between the various router configurations

All the options listed will keep guide data, VOD and widgets intact.  On screen caller-id and remote DVR are problematic though.  See the FAQ for details on a possible work-around.

IPv6 is a simple software upgrade on the Verizon routers. No need for a new unit unless more RAM is needed to support the larger NAT table entries IPv6 creates.

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...

The Rev. F, G, and I routers are Wireless N routers. They are out and about in customer homes and are gotten at random, with the exception of the Rev G which is only given to 150M customers. The Rev. F has a Draft N radio capable of doing no more than a theoretical 65Mbps from the way Verizon is driving  it. The Rev G and I do higher speeds, around 145Mbps from what I've seen.

 

Still behind what the off-the-shelf router manufacturers are doing, but they are finally improving it.
