"Automatic" v6 address allocation
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hi. I've been trying to subscribe to this list, but for some reason
I'm not getting the subscribe challenge/response emails. Oh well.
Recently I've changed from my orinoco 802.11b card to a 802.11g card
that takes the MadWIFI drivers. All well and good, it builds,
installs, recognizes the card and away we go with a new "ath0"
But, it takes 10-15 minutes before it detects/creates a global IPv6
address for itself.
With the previous card, it took maybe a minute or two. Annoying, but
hardly impossible to deal with.
I'm using a Debian box as the "router", and I know that the interface
is getting its address from there because it's always picking up the
If I give it an address, then it will accept it but sometime (after 10
to 15 minutes) it again grabs an address and *adds* it to the
interface in addition to the address I defined by hand.
Is there some way to speed this process up?
