This paper deals with a hardware accelerator as a part of the Liberouter project which is focused on design and implementation of a PC based IPv6 router. Major part of the Liberouter project is the development of a hardware accelerator – the PCI board called COMBO6 and its FPGA design which allows processing most of the network traffic in hardware.
