Actually, out of the box my newish Linksys WRT610N started sending RAs 
and provides IPv6 connectivity via 6to4. Came as a bit of a surprise 
when it stole traffic away from my existing IPv6 tunnel. Couple of 
problems, though:

1) No switch to turn it off
2) No firewalling/filtering is done.

This makes it somewhat less than ideal, and worse than the original 
Apple Airport default configuration which at least had clear and obvious 
knobs to make it do the right thing even if they had a poor default setting.
