A lot of people will be caught out, even though it's been on the cards for a long time...

Wonder how many router manufacturers will update firmware, and how many will force customers to buy afresh!

I can't see the likes of many manufacturers writing new firmware for pre-2011/2 hardware. Especially models which were subject to "free ISP" distribution as it'll be brushed off as the customers responsibility to pay for a new router...

Certain manufacturers come to mind more than others too...

My router is IPv6 ready and my modem should be, but that is controlled by my ISP and they have it set for IPv4 so we shall see when this great migration takes place. Just have to reconfigure the router and Windows and hope my ISP gives me the correct settings.

My website hosting (OVH) were testing iPvP6 few months ago and everything was ok. And I'm sure my own internet is ready too. I have got one of the best Czech internet provider.
