Airport Express does IPv6

| | Comments (0) | TrackBacks (0)

Apple's Airport Express has long been a popular, cheap wireless access point. They're popular with several of my colleagues for business trips -- they're a nice way to get wireless in your hotel room when you travel.

This morning, Apple rev'ed the Airport Express. They added draft 802.11n support. They also added 6to4 tunneling support. This feature has been around in Apple's higher-end Airport Extreme for over a year, but the cheaper Express has lacked it. With today's announcement, Apple supports IPv6 tunneling on all of their wireless access points (the Airport Express, Airport Extreme and Time Capsule).

To the best of my knowledge, Apple is the only consumer electronics vendor who can say this. Most other vendors don't support IPv6 at all; a few support it on one or two of their products. Way to go Apple!
