For resi CPE, we use Ovislink ADSL NAT gateways.

They have generally been quite receptive to listen to software change
requests in the past (and we only buy ~40/month). We do not send out any
CPE to resi clients that isn't configured with PPPoE and NAT, which
saves us obvious headaches down the road (well, double-NAT is off-topic

Their equipment uses Busybox. Thanks to Dan White's post, I was able to
verify that ``ifconfig'' took an IPv6 assignment command without error,
but it didn't show up in the config afterward.

Does anyone else use Ovislink products for their resi DSL subs? The gear
is in the price range we are after, and I'm sure it wouldn't take much
for them to add in v6 support if a few of us went with the request together.
