That was the case with the router that was provided with my FiOS service
over the summer. It looks like it wasn't even a firmware issue, or a
Verizon-specific formware load, unless Verizon turned on the 'enable IPv6'
bit at some point. When I first got it, there was no IPv6 configuration
on the router at all, nor was there an option to turn it on. When I
checked a few weeks later, there was an IPv6 configuration section, but
the router had not been rebooted during that time, and it is still running
the same firmware as before - when no v6 config section showed up.
