Hi Marco....

Yes, this box would work (at least from looks of what I can configure from Acct Info).  I am just expanding/testing my v6only network and have the capability to have many device communicate only over v6......the varied v6 support *today* that doesn't do *native* v6  in a CPE is a disappointment.

I have a Fritz!Box 7330 with IPv6, but I'm using it in a different scenario: I have an IPv4 connection over ADSL and I get IPv6 via a SixXS tunnel. Anyway, I am sending you two snapshots of the two relevant configuration panels of the Fritz!Box, which, in my opinion, prove that te Fritz!Box should be able to do what you need.

>> It's really a simple set-up.....configure a /64 on the WAN side and a /64 on the LAN side.  And v6 DNS servers.  Just simple native v6 connectivity from my v6-wireless devices to my router with native v6 Internet connectivity.  I'm not even looking at any filtering or logging :)  Just plain WAN-LAN connectivity via native v6.
>> While I just this week bought new CPEs from the local OfficeMax thinking the IPv6 support as stated on the boxes is finally here I'm quite disappointed. Perhaps I'm just not looking at the right models.  I did upgrade to latest firmware that seemed to be available.  Looking for devices in the $99-$130 price range.
