yea, so my 'saga' started with:
 1) "dlink 615 doesn't like dhcp-pd ... and is flat broken for v6"
    a) gets v6 addr on WAN from arris-RA
    b) gets PD alloction from arris, does RA's to LAN
c) sets default-gw for v6 on the LAN side to something unreachable
    d) manually resetting default-gw ... gets me zippy... can't ping
either side of the dlink, nor the arris :(
     e) dlink's v6 code (for that platform) is just boarked, badly.

 2) oh! dd-wrt does this platform too, and v6
   a) install dd-wrrt
   b) fiddle-fart around with v6 configs
   c) oh.. dhcp-pd is one of the things dd-wrt didn't implement :(
   d) oh, their 'v6 support' is really only 'v6 tunnel support'
   e) boned.

basically ... this is much harder to do than it shoudl be :( and yes, I can probably do something like plug in my raspberry-pi and make that a 'router' but come on... in 2013 I have to home-brew something to get
a protocol developed and engineered in 2000 to work? :(

(this raised itself above my level of 'fixed in a weekend' project, so my comcast v6 lays fallow... NOTE: this is NOT comcast's fault, in my


I feel your pain. I am on the Comcast Business trial and have tried pfsense and now trying monowall. I followed all the different instructions I could find for pfsense 2.1 and while I could pull the WAN IP, I never could get a LAN ip nor could I get an ip on any of my computers.

I am now in the process of trying m0n0wall and have gotten IP's on the WAN, LAN, and on my workstation. Can ping from my workstation to my m0n0wall LAN and WAN IP's but nothing will route out to the net.

It should really be easier than this.
