Re: [opensuse] Practicalities of IPv6
The problem is that consumer level routers don't support IPv6, at least
in routing & NAT functions.

This is exagerrated; some "consumer" routers like the Linksys WRT610 do
support IPv6. Only you wouldn't know it as there is no related
information in the admin UI [maybe because with IPv6 there is next to
nothing to admin].

Especially if you are on Comcast [internally Comcast is using IPv6 today
- right now] you may have IPv6 connectivity and just not realize it.
Look at the "ip -6 addr" output of one of your LINUX boxes (with IPv6
enabled) and see if you have a network address other than fe80::*, if
so then something on your network is providing IPv6 advertisement.

Also many consumer routers can be 'upgraded' with third-party firmware
(like OpenWRT) to have first-class IPv6 support.
