Is the Cisco SPA112 IPv6 ready?
Q: Is the Cisco SPA112 IPv6 ready? What other ATA adapters do you sell that are IPv6 ready? Thanks! A: The Cisco SPA112 is IPv6 compatible. It is set to IPv4 by default but can be upgraded to IPv6 with ease. All of our adapters are IPv6 ready. Nowadays, most every adapter is IPv6 compatible.
