I am on DSL at home with *native* IPv6. DSL terminates on little Cisco
877. There is however nothing weird behind this what could speak IPv6 -
PC running Ubuntu and Macbook with newest release of OSX, so they are
both well known IPv6 speakers.
The only "geeky" thing there is that my router terminates VPN from
outside and assigns IPv6 to client via PPP (PPTP to be precise), so it
let me do IPv6 on every IPv4 network, which doesn't block PPTP
Downside - poor speed due to DSL upload being only 512k.
