Despite the fact that we currently don't support IPv6 on non-mesh interfaces, our network stack still processes incoming ND6 (RFC4861) messages. When receiving RA, ND6 code will blindly overwrite DNS servers previously set by DHCPv4.


Disable ND6 packet processing if NETIF_FLAG_NO_ND6 is set on the interface (particle-iot/lwip#3). This holds true at the moment for all our interfaces.

Steps to Test

Check that Argons or Xenons with Ethernet FeatherWing can correctly perform gateway functionality when connected to an IPv6-enabled network on WiFi or Ethernet interface.

Example App



  • [CH24688]

Programmed this on my gateway (when connected to my Xfinity router) while the joiner was blinking green and after it programmed and rebooted my joiner connected finally! W00t!! Way to go Andrey!
