According to the ARIN wiki, the 825 version C1 supports the identical 
set of features as the DIR-655 including the firewall.  The 825 B 
version omits the firewall.  The 615 does not support a firewall.  And 
due to the amount of flash in it, it probably never will.

Thanks for the reminder, I went ahead and made a few minor updates to
that CPE page.  The DIR-615 firmware link on it was to the 3.12 version,
there is a newer one out now, 3.13, and I removed the prerelease comment
since that version is on the main dlink support webinterface now. (it is
obviously not prerelease)   I also cleaned up a bit the links for 
openwrt and dd-wrt IPv6 info.

I probably should load up the current factory firmware for the DIR-615 
and make some screenshots of the IPv6 interface and link them up on
the wiki.
