DHCP is required for Internode Native IPv6

Part of the way Internode have setup their internal network means that you must use DHCPv6 on your gateway to request prefix delegation, even if you have a static assignment.

From discussions with Internode staff, the DHCPv6 PD request notifies their routing systems "where" you are. Unless you do this, your IPv6 traffic will be aggregate routed to a null route in Los Angles (LAX).
