IPv6 worked fine ... until the router died.  It might have been the
airflow problem you mention, but I have no choice other than to have
it directly on the floor.  I can't really recommend this given that it
had ongoing problems and eventually died.

Nowadays I'm running OpenWRT on an ASUS RT-N16.

It was an a--- to set up IPv6 (mainly, I suspect, because I have an
insanely complex and non-standard LAN configuration), but it does
finally work, and works very well too.
