This page lists routers that support IPv6 out of the box.
Note that at this time some of the popular brands, such as D-Link, Linksys and Belkin, show no signs of supporting IPv6 in the immediate future. Contacting them, or asking on the relavent forums, confirmed that they have nothing available or planned at this point. For this reason, if you wish to add IPv6 support to a router that does not officially support it, then your best best is to look at one of the third-party firmwares, such as OpenWrt, DD-WRT and Sveasoft, but note that not all routers have this option.
It is possible to configure a generalised computer, using BSD or Linux for example, to act as a router though this is outside the scope of this page.
Another note for Cisco Routers in my example configuration was that the router should be directly assigned to the internet not through NAT or anything else. It did not work although all ports were forwarded to the device. So configure your Router with a dedicated Internet-Link!!!
Just because a router supports IPv6 does not mean it will support a establishing a tunnel, so you should check that tunnelling is supported before purchasing it to connect with Sixxs. If you have any of the routers below and have been able to use it to connect to Sixxs directly (as opposed to using a secondary device), then please add a note next to it indicating that it is possible.

|Airport Extreme||Apple||IPv6 (6to4 and manual tunnels (Teredo)), requires MacOS X or MS-Windows to configure (no web UI). PPPoE, DHCP support. The AirPort Extreme has to have a static IPv4 address in order to work as an IPv6 router, and the IPv6 firewall ("Block incoming IPv6 connections" on the Advanced->IPv6 tab in AirPort Configuration Utility) must be disabled for it to respond to ping as required by sixxs.|
|Time Capsule||Apple||IPv6 (6to4 and manual tunnels (Teredo)), requires MacOS X or MS-Windows to configure (no web UI). PPPoE, DHCP support.|
|ARxxx||Allied Telesis||Allied Telesis claims that ipv6 is enabled on its routers via a special feature licence. Configuration example for the AR740 can be found on Allied Telesis website|

Metalcases are available and the boards are available with up to 9 NICs and multiple wireless if needed. Matter of fact, there's also OpenWRT and DD-WRT ports for some of the boards, if you don't like RouterOS. Simple IPv6 guide for setting RouterOS up with tunnels can be found here.|
|Sonicwall NSA series||Sonicwall||SonicOS Enhanced 5.0+ claims ipv6 prepared, can't verify if it supports tunneling ipv6 over ipv4|
Note: You are encouraged to update this list if you know of IPv6 capable routers not yet listed here.
