I'm in the US -- could very well be available only in the N.A. market.

Manuals have not been updated -- it's running with pre-GA code.

Two thing about this one after have read the manual of this product.

This is probably for the american market. I'm in europe.

Second, nowhere in their manual is the word "ipv6" or "v6" found.
