Just bought one of these.  You upgrade it to firmware 1.06d from the 
Billion web site, reset, then tick the "Enable IPv6" check box and bam, 
you have full IPv6 connectivity (assuming your ISP supports it - I use A&A).

It appears to doing NAT on your IPv4 and not on your IPv6.  Each of my 
devices on the LAN picks up a global IPv6 address.  The IPv6 firewall 
appears to default to allowing all outgoing traffic and refusing all 
incoming.  There are facilities there to add extra rules but I've yet to 
set up an incoming IPv6 rule.

Documentation is poor - read non-existent - but it's a start.
