I'm in the same boat with TNTs.  We bought replacement fans years ago
(about the only TNT part we've had fail, outside the odd card or two).

How are ISPs that still offer dialup going to handle dialup and IPv6?  I
know the TNTs don't do it, and I don't think most of the old equipment
in use in many places does.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
