Sorry to keep bringing this up but I hope it helps get correct information on the page.

For link-local auto-configuration, are routes necessary? These are prefixed by fe80::/80 suffixed with the NIC's MAC address.
+
 
+
For auto-configured, globally routable addresses, <tt>net-misc/radvd</tt> '''*should*''' configure addressing and routing, much like DHCP does in IPv4 ([http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc4861.txt RFC4861]).
+
 
+
What about IPv6 over secure wireless? wpa_supplicant requires the interface to be up, but addressing requires wpa_supplicant to be connected (right?). If wpa_supplicant connects after a delay (as is normal), does the interface get its address?
+
 
+
Not exactly related, but there is also IPv6 ULA ([http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc4193 RFC4193], FC00::/7).

== re: zeroconf and addressing ==

+
My understanding is that link-local addresses are non-routeable (local LAN only) and thus don't require any routes to be set.
+
 
+
Yes, we/you can add information about radvd, but it is only used when you are configuring your system to act as a router, at least that it is my understanding.
+
 
+
I don't understand the wpa_supplicant issue, but I haven't used IPV6 over wireless with Funtoo yet.

I see I misunderstood. I assumed that, as consumer IPv6 tech is not widely available, all users would be running a linux router with radvd. It is possible that other ND/router advertisements do not set routes...
