For god's sake, stay away from the DIR-825(Rev A), which has been 
effectively abandoned by DLINK support and has no IPv6 support at all. 
This has left a bad taste in my mouth.  It has an entirely different 
processor in it. The RevB replaced the RevA over a year ago, but it's 
worth checking.

Unfortunately, my Rev B was blown up by lightning.  Dunno if it is being 
supported by DLINK any better.
