Last 3 cheap routers. BIG STICKER: INSTALL SOFTWARE BEFORE YOU PLUG THIS 
ROUTER IN! I doubt many users even use the old "goto 
http://192.168.1.1/" anymore. That being said, there are private 
addressing schemes in IPv6 as well. No reason one could be bound to a 
cpe router with an easy to type address.
