And while you're at it, have them update the
Sipura-owned-by-Linksys-owned-by-Cisco gear too, as those often contain
routers too, and IPv6 support will end a lot of NAT headaches.

Tell your coworkers that until Linksys-owned-by-Cisco gear gets IPv6
buttons in it, IPv6 ain't a real thing to any org under 50 employees.

The RVS4000 is a good first step - now, let's extend that code to the 
rest of the Linksys product line.

You don't want to be embarrassed by DD-WRT, after all, do you?
