Indeed. Our little not-corporate-so-it-actually-works network has an  
877W. We don't use the W bit anymore, so that I could turn on IPv6  
and get our guys some experience actually using it for 'real life'  
applications outside of a routing lab.
Not only is it not supported on dot11radio interfaces, it's not  
supported on BVIs and the various bridging things don't appear to  
want to bridge it.

Unless these boxes get IPv6 support really fast, I will definitely be  
recommending against customers using them.
