Because here, everything is on a 192.168.x.x address, fixed using host files 
for dns resolution.  Anything that doesn't resolve locally gets sent to 
192.168.X.1, which is a dd-wrt install which handles all the PPPoE stuffs to 
connect me to my adsl account.  A max of 4 live machines here certainly 
doesn't need the complexity of ipv6.

That is all I get from vz, and I have doubts they have anything setup that 
would forward an ipv6 query to my ipv4 address their quasi-dhcp issues.
