October 25, 2011 at 3:03 pm PST
Okay Linksys E-Series router owners, we had some new firmware upgrades to
our popular E-Series products including:  E1500, E2500, E3200 and E4200.
The IPV6 support will help your router work correctly when service providers
migrate their networks over to the new Internet protocol.  Downloading this
firmware will make sure your router supports their networks.  Also if you
download the new firmware your router can automatically detect if there is
IPv6 traffic on the Internet port.  If there is, it will be able to route
that data between the Internet and the user’s local computers. Cool uh?!   
If you haven’t downloaded the new firmware yet – check out what we’ve added,
enhanced and some of the things we fixed:  Yea – it’s Linksys being committed
to giving you the best experience possible!
