I'm no DD-WRT expert, but having recently jumped through the hoops to get a
tunnel up and running, I think it's important to point out what qualifies as
IPv6 support in DD-WRT... It's not pretty, it's not point and click, and you
won't be configuring it from the GUI.

The v24 IPv6 support means that the required kernel modules are available to
load (by you), routes can be configured (manually), and you can get IPv6
working without having to recompile the firmware. For an example of the type
of configuration required, see this post:

For a service provider, you'd might as well go back to OpenWRT and start
there for R&D. As an "early adopting" home user, I'm planning on getting an
Alix box up and running: I'd rather be using OpenBSD/pf anyways. Embedded
devices are only fun to play with for so long, unless you like jffs and
praying to the gods for an extra kilobyte or two.
