I would imagine its weird letter.

I don't think IPV6 support on day one but the 2800 takes
1G of memory so it should be an issue.

I believe all of those are available.

There is an Enhanced NM port and and Enhanced WIC ports that take cards
that can do more with the newer bus [but are backwards compatible].
