I have a MikroTik hAP Lite router for my FTTH service at my house.

It has excellent support for IPv6, including a ton of translation
mechanisms.

My problem is my home provider doesn't do IPv6, so I run a 6-in-4 tunnel
back to my own backbone for the service (no latency impact as my home
provider is my IP Transit customer :-) ). This is a little unstable
because my home provider doesn't know how to give me a stable IPv4
address for my FTTH service.

But I do have to say that I am massively impressed by what that little
MikroTik box can do. IPv6 on my home LAN works as expected, as it does
across the 6-in-4 tunnel.

Mark.
