In addition:

Window XP and above is already IPv6 capable.

Many modem and router manufactures will be able to issue a firmware update for their equipment, to add IPv6 128 bit addressing.

Many router manufactures are already or will be selling IPv6 128 bit addressing routers.
You touched on the subject that I think is the real answer.

I was thinking that for devices that don't support IPV6 the router is going to be the answer. Maybe user-configured on a per-port basis, or maybe as a function of DHCP, the router will determine "Hmm, this device does not do IPV6" and thus do the translation internally. I'm sure there will be a slew of devices that don't do IPV6, and if it's still a problem when the time comes, our routers will be the answer.

I doubt the statement, "As I recollect, most existing consumer equipment will have to be discarded." is true for the reason I stated above.

alternety, I gather you still haven't seen the link that I provided in my original reply? LOL

lbmofo - I did indeed not see your link in the first post. Why I don't know; and then thought you were later referring to the other link you provided. My response was unfounded and rude. My sincere apology.

No problem at all alternety. I think my comment was a bit abrupt and should have included some kind of intro to the link. ;)

It's been very quite for IPV6. Has any progress been made in this area?

To my knowledge no ISP provides native IPv6 for residential use.
The hacks like 6to4 and 6RD are slower than IPv4 because they require connection to one or two servers in the country to work.
Only DOCSIS 3 modems require the inclusion of IPv6 support. Until the majority of the DOCSIS 1.1 and 2 modems reach end of life there will be no push for IPv6 support. Most residential routers in use today do not support IPv6. Comcast terminated their 6RD trial on June 30, 2011. Once World IPv6 day (June 8, 2011), which proved the viability of IPv6, had passed the mention of IPv6 disappeared from the news. IMHO IPv6 will not be in general use within the US for many years.
