      IPv6 prefix fail

      Just checking on this. I've (finally) managed to get OpenWrt and Homenet working together with Sky, including coping with the ~weekly dropouts, which were causing Homenet to lose ipv4 connectivity. However, over the last few days, my ipv6 prefix keeps disappearing after a few hours. I don't *believe* that this is a change at my end, but it could be.

      Has anyone else had periodic loss of ipv6 prefix, especially with non-sky routers?

      Nope.. prefix changing if you are not careful, but it doesn't disappear.

      I got the fix in to avoid sending the dhcp release.
