Most of the Linksys routers have a button in the firmware
you can select NAT or Gateway mode - in gateway mode, the
device is indeed a real router, not a NAT

Also, the WRT610N version 1 and 2 both run dd-wrt firmware,
and there's a build of that firmware that supports IPv6,
both as a tunnel endpoint, and a native IPv6 router.

I'd be very happy to accept a donated WRT610N in exchange for
running it through a testbed and publishing the results. ;-)  ;-)
