Those are NAT64 implementations, which makes it possible for you to run your LAN clients IPv6-only, and still be able to reach IPv4 services "out there".
What Amiga needs, is the oppsite - IPv4-only LAN, being able to reach IPv6 services "out there", and though it is not entirely impossible, it is not something anyone wish to do, as it requires quite a bit of thinking (IPv6 is more than just "more addresses", it also involves changes in ICMP, MTU, requires multicast, etc etc - it really is a whole new version of TCP/IP, as the name also implies. Those who just say "NAT, you ignorant fuck", are showing HUGE ignorance and utter lack of understanding of how IPv6 works.
The only problem would be, that AVM (the FritzBox developer) wouldn't want to waste time and money on such a task, since 99% of it's users have target machines that already can do IPv6 by themselves.
Exactly. And this is where certain people in the Amiga community prefer to stick their heads in the sand and pretend that "it will be fixed by router" - no, it will not be fixed by router, legacy IPv4 support is something less than a percentage of "most users" will need, and there is no guarantee that ISPs will support IPv4 by default - I can imagine that they will rather sell it as an extra servers, as it takes a bit of effort to support both IPv4 and IPv6.
The other possibility i see (although not really achievable) would be to place some small system (RPi) inbetween the router/internet and Amiga and let it do all the dirty work providing only the websites? (That could also negate the need of AmiSSL stuff being done on the target system - i read somewhere -)
This is what I do, all my Amiga systems have rpi zeros installed, IPv4 with RFC1918 address between Amiga and Pi, and Pi providing web-proxy, "man-in-the-middle"-type SSL-proxy, jump-host between rsh/rlogin/telnet and ssh, ftp-proxy etc. Configuring and maintaining such a raspberry-pi setup is way out of league for most Amiga users though, I'm sure.
Would it be possible to create (or is there already) a PCI/PCIe card that does exactly that and could simply be plugged into the Amiga?
My A3000 has a RasperryPi plugged into one of the ISA slots (via adapter), but just to get 5V
