IPv6 on 877 Wireless

I am experimenting with IPv6 at home, where I have a 877 router. I have successfully set up a 6to4 tunnel and am able to use it fully at the ethernet interfaces.

However, when I try to configure IPv6 on the wireless side I find out there is not ipv6 under the 'interface dot11radio 0'. There is not ipv6 available on BVIs when the wireless is part of it, but when I remove the wireless i can enable IPv6 on the BVI.

I am starting to think IPv6 is in no way supported on the wireless interface of the 877. When looking at the IPv6 Solutions white paper I see the 800 series is listed with a 'Now' in the 'IPv6 Status', and no mention of it in the release notes means to me I should be able to configure it.

Of course, there might be some 'hidden' command that I am unable to find which enables IPv6 on wireless interfaces.

I'm running on 12.4(15)T1 Advanced IP Services.

Anyone with any insight into this issue?

IPv6 is currently not supported on the wireless interface (or via IRB) on the 877w. This is on the road map though. Please contact your account team for more details.
