[Bug 1310335] Re: IPv6 renewal causes network-manager to disconnect & reconnect


Looks like i was wrong: the connection gets dropped anyway. I've just tested this slowly downloading a large file (this is what happens):
So i guess it's not (just) a network manager issue.

Bug description:
  IPv6 renewal causes network manager to disconnect & reconnect

  Happens *roughly* every ten minutes.
  My network is running fully dual stack.
  The problematic option in the IPv6 part of the router's settings is
  "IP Address Assignment"
  - Use DHCP Server
  - Auto Config    <---- Problem presents itself only when using this one
  I have a Netgear DGND3700v2 router, firmware version V1.1.00.15_1.00.15 (latest).

  There are 3 different PCs on WiFi and ethernet.
  Network manager settings are: one PC static IPv4, two DHCPv4 and all of them Automatic for IPv6.
  Linux Mint: 
  kernel 3.2.0-60 x86 network-manager version (MATE)
  kernel 3.5.0-48 x64 network-manager version (Cinnamon)
  kernel 3.11.0-12 x64 network-manager version (MATE)

  Wifi disconnection log (repeated, ethernet reconnects seem to leave no trace and seem to happen slightly less frequently):
