Interoperability tests aren¹t really for consumers. For consumer devices,
they¹re for vendors to make sure their stuff actually works.

I think Samsung¹s new models support IPv6.
Several printers run IPv6.
Nest thermostats.
Wireless light bulbs.
Panasonic cameras.

Sure, there are still items with no IPv6-supporting vendors, but the IPv6
market is growing. Search for ³IPv6 <device>² for whatever device you care
