Can Att give us some information one Ipv6 u-verse router update schedules and or physical router updates to support the new internet protocol that was released today?
According to the Ipv6 testing site, my ATT max turbo U-verse account is not compatiable with Ipv6, which will become the new internet standard.
As a long time customer, I request this information, and ATT's full support to get all of your internet routers updated to support Ipv6.

In answer to some of your questions:
1. IPv6 wasn't released today, it's been around for several years. Today was "world IPv6 day" where several top-end companies including Google, Verisign, Yahoo, Facebook, and others enabled IPv6 on their main servers under the same domain name (e.g. www.google.com) for the first time. Previously, IPv6 connectivity to their servers was only available through alternate domain names (e.g. ipv6.google.com).
2. AT&T has not rolled out IPv6 to consumer customers yet, but it is available and working for enterprise customers.
3. For U-Verse, IPv6 compatibility is expected to be implemented with a firmware upgrade to the 2Wire routers, and will not require new hardware.
4. IPv6 and IPv4 will co-exist side-by-side for many years to come, so not having IPv6 is not a detriment to you for at least the next several years.
For further information on AT&T's IPv6 rollut plans for consumers, see:

I found this IPv6 support page on AT&T's site today http://www.att.com/esupport/ipv6.jsp. It points to articles and information for home and business customers.

Awesome answers. I really appreciate it.
I have the u-verse gateway that does net, phone, and tv
I guess these will not be supported in the ipv6 firmware update
As these routers cannot do UPnP (for PS3 reasons) (which sucks btw, makes the routers feel vary dated)
Anyways, I hope that att will support all of their clients and not just the 2wire ones
in the new ipv6 process.
