OSNews, Generic OSes We've taken the next step in Internet connectivity, and have IPv6-enabled this site for testing purposes. Of course, this will only work if your ISP or some third-party gateway provides you with IPv6 connectivity, which you can check here. If you're all set, try the IPv6 OSnews out at http://ipv6.osnews.com/ and let us know if you have any trouble with it.

This comment was posted over IPv6 using a 6to4 anycast gateway (192.88.99.1). I used to get a gateway in NYC from Boston FIOS. Now I am getting a gateway in Chicago. Verizon won't directly pass IPv6 yet.

It is very easy to set dd-wrt up to use a 6to4 gateway. Enabling 6to4 in your router makes your whole LAN IPv6 enabled. Might be interesting to do an article on setting this up just to raise awareness.
