Cannot predict as of now, however as we are aware that in future most of the ISPs will upgrade their network to IPv6, so hopefully we will have a firmware for X3000 as well that supports IPv6.
But if you can use a separate modem and router, then E4200 is the model that supports IPv6.

that should be a possibility. however, firmware updates for gateways are usually coursed through the ISPs, so i'm not sure how cisco will go about this. guess we'll have to wait and see!

This is extremely disappointing. I have just (as of 28th November 2012) bought a new X3000 for a client equipment refresh I'm putting in. I don't fancy the ire I'm going to get when IPv6 day arrives and stuff stops working.
I would much rather Cisco took their responsibilities for current equipment support a little more seriously than "I guess we will have to wait and see".
Guess who I won't be shopping with for a replacement if I have not got a solution ready to go before the brown stuff hits the fan. [Better still, the system updates itself automatically and I don't have to do anything ...]
Option: I might be able to get a refund on the X3000 if Cisco can suggest an alternative that does much the same thing, at a similar price and available in New Zealand.
Here is Cisco's list of IPv6 devices - I have not had time to check them out re my requirments:
January 21, 2009
1.00.02 (build 10)
June 14, 2011
1.0.02 (build 13)
December 19, 2011
2.0.01 (build 1)
December 14, 2011
1.0.00 (build 4)
February 21, 2012
December 31, 2011

I have verified this from the knowledge base website and you are right that those devices you’ve posted were the only ones currently supporting ipv6. I cannot find any reasons or answers why cisco has not released any new firmware for your device yet, probably this was just how the device was designed but hopefully there will be a new firmware that will be released soon.

It appears the lastest firmware release X3000 1.0.04 (build 007) has IPv6. From the release history:

Do not advise anyone to update their firmware to the current version 1.0.04 . This firmware does implement IPv6 although there are major flaws with it and a new release is coming.
