> Cisco still has no IPv6 capable equipment for sale.
Bullshit. Cisco's LINKSYS CONSUMER WIRELESS ROUTERS are IPv4-only.
Cisco-branded gear has incorporated the 'Carrier-Grade IPv6 (CGv6)'
firmware code as part of their dual-stack implementation for many years.
In brief: Kindly stop making pronouncements about things you don't even
begin to understand. It's gotten old.
> IPv6 is still broken, or missing, in most vendors' consumer network gear
Dogs and cats living together. Mass hysteria!
Meanwhile, if you really think you need full IPv6 support in your $30
plastic WAP, reflash it with OpenWRT. Open source wins. Imagine that.

ISP recursive nameservers tend strongly to be security, performance, and
reliability nightmares. Fortunately, they are easily ignored. Both the
BIND9 and Unbound packages give you IPv6 support and DNSSEC for free,
for those who care.
