I'm replacing my Linksys WAG310g with a Draytek Vigor 120, to play nice with my Airport Extreme and hopefully resolve some issues I'm having

Both the DV120 and AEBS claim to support ipv6, anyone know if this will work with my Xnet Fusion service?

Is it worth bothering with trying to set up?

Thanks Dave

I have the same setup with Orcon, but they don't provide IPV6 to residential users yet. AE will work fine when you set it to tunnel. It uses 6-to-4, I think.

You can get native IPv6 on Xnet Fusion and the Vigo can be put into full bridge mode so the last part of the equation is whether the Airport can do native IPv6 routing. I suspect it can but you may want to check. BTW you will need to apply for the WNXZ "trial" to get native IPv6.
