    I found this:
    Code:
    Doing the following (as root) in a terminal seems to work (eth1 is my wireless interface)
    
    ip -6 link set eth1 down
    ip -6 link set eth1 up
    
    This sorts out the ipv6 address after the next radvd broadcast but screws up ipv4 so you need to re-run dhclient on eth1
    ALSO:
    have to set
    
    IPV6=yes
    
    in /etc/default/ufw
    but that did not seem to help. Also, my card is actually eth0.

    Use the built in Network Connections. There is a tab for IPv6 just set it to Automatic and save. Should do what you need.
