Does anyone know if the version 2 of the airport extreme can handle ip6?
All versions of the 802.11n AirPort Extreme base stations support basic IPv6 functions.
If you change to the latest and greatest of the airport extreme do you have to re-program everything from scratch?
Possibly, but that would depend on the version of the AirPort base station that you are replacing. With the latest version 6.x of the AirPort Utility it will take you through the steps to replace one AirPort with another including copying the settings from the base station to be replaced.
I have several dhcp reservations in my router now. I would not like having to go through all of that again.
Same answer as provided to the previous question.
Does the sheer number of things both wireless and wired slow the system down or are they only slowing things down when they are sending or receiving?
Only when they are actively sending or receiving data.
