IPv6 facts


  • StuckBeacon

    v18 v19  
    8686Changing the channel to 8 increased the speed. I've set mode to auto ({{{iwpriv ath0 mode 0}}}). HostAP is running in "G" mode. Turbo mode is enabled. 
     88None of the above solutions work in my case. The most important fact that hasn't been mentioned here at all: Stuck beacons have hardly any influence on IPv4 traffic, but as far as IPv6 is concerned, they are a terrible nuisance. Each stuck beacon means that all router advertisement (and router solicitation) messages on the interface are blocked either for a very long period of time (usually more than one hour), or permanently. However, no errors are reported by radvd. For the IPv6-only LAN I am running, this is a total disaster. Presumably, tricks with background scans and antennas did not help at all.
