+ - Asia Has Officially Run Out of IPv4 Addresses->

Submitted by mindbuilder
mindbuilder writes: The Asia Pacific and Australia region has officially run out of Internet protocol version 4 addresses today. Actually they have a few left but they've begun their "final eight policy", so addresses will only be dolled out in tiny quantities over the next several years. Even regions with addresses still available will be effected by this because making contact to computers in the APNIC region will get harder as more APNIC users have to start sharing addresses from behind NAT. If you or your family are in the market for a wireless router or other network gear, be sure to look for IPv6 compatibility.
