Maybe. Probably even. IPv6 has been around for quite a while now. Most consumer networking hardware doesn't seem to support it, even if it's technically capable of doing so. My cable modem, for example, has no user interface options for IPv6, even though the hardware manufacturer (SMC, in my case) says that it can handle it.So my old hardware will support IPv6?
The responses to that post make the same statements I'm about to.I think you are under the misconception that NAT provides security. It does not: http://security.stackexchange.com/questions/8772/how-important-is-nat-as-a-security-layer
Many providers (my employer for example) used to provide a /24 with each dedicated connection as a matter or course; Those were T1's generally. We also offered ISDN, but IP addresses had to be requested. A class C per (business) customer was pretty typical, regardless of connection type.I'm ordering a 100/100 fiber connection and they just gave me 128 addresses without even asking.
