IPV6 and routers, will I need to change my router, or update it? Will the routers have a choice to enter 6 numbers insted of 4?

Hi, I'm somewhat new to this new IPv6 format.  I did search around Experts-Exchange, but am still somewhat confused.  When this great change over happens, will I need to junk all the routers at my companies because they only have a choice of entering 4 numbers for the IP address, or will they (Linksys, I'm looking at you) release a patch?  Or will the ISP's make this seamless?  Also, will I need to change out my modems?  Last one, do the clients care?  I am assuming my internal LAN dosen't need to change as long as it's benind the router.

Thanks guys.
