Linksys WRT54GL + IPV6 + 3rd Party Firmware?

I was wondering if there was any good 3rd party firmware for the model I listed that will have support for IPV6 once Charter actually gets around to using it?

So far I've found Tomato-USB but apparently the version that supports IPV6 has major bugs. It's a shame cause the Tomato GUI is great.

Anyone know?

    Offhand, there's ddwrt as well, but I don't have any first hand experience with either ddwrt or tomato other than apparently bricking a router in the process of flashing one of them.

    There's a whole host of router systems, but your mileage would probably vary greatly.

    DD-WRT supports IPv6 though I would be pretty surprised if you actually needed your router to support it.

    Once your ISP switches over to IPv6 you most definitely will need a router that knows what to do with that address. You can still run your internal network as IPv4 with NAT if you want but there would really be no reason to do that.

    Finding out if/when Charter will add support for IPv6 is like pulling teeth, sadly. Aside from anecdotal evidence of people claiming Charter in their area is using IPv6, I can't seem to find anything official.

    I can say the various IPv6 testing sites say I'm not using/ready for IPv6. Apparently I'm using a tunneling service known as 'Teredo' but I'm not sure if that's my ISP or my router.

    http://test-ipv6.com/ Is the site, for those who are interested.

    I haven't updated or looking at DD-WRT in years but their wiki says it does not?
