This looks somewhat promising:

If you want something cheaper, this:
is about $100.

I haven’t tried either of these myself yet, but other Netgear home products with IPv6 support have worked reasonably well in my experience and these are newer generation and do list IPv6 support in their data sheets.

There may be cheaper models. I haven’t done any sort of thorough investigation.

Of course the Apple Airport Express and Airport Extreme models also have 802.11ac support and known good IPv6 implementations.

D-Link has a long list of approved products, but I chose to stop using their products for other reasons.  If any can recommend a mid-range consumer router that you think would meet our needs, please drop me a note off-list.

Ideally, this would be a set of standards that users of the logo agree to abide by rather than a fee-based testing regime that excludes smaller players.
