Here s a little guide on how to get started with your own IPv6 gateway on a Linksys WRT54GL router – or any other device that can run OpenWRT.
This will enable you to get experienced with IPv6 in your own network, even if the ISPs and organisations around you are not yet ready for it yet.
Mind you, this is not a replacement for true native IPv6, just a little starter.
Also, the guide does not go into all the concepts and reasons for IPv6 – you might want to read up on these, to fully understad what you are doing. Wikipedia is a good start point: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ipv6
(This little demo setup is at the IT UNiversity of Copenhagen, where we are working with end-to-end IPv6 enabled wireless sensor networks, BLIP and 6LoWPAN.)
