using Windows XP with IPv6 enabled.

Attempting to connect over IPv6 using MozillaCorp-A in Building S fails; my computer is only getting a link-local address, and it can't connect to kame.net over IPv6.

I'll try to debug this.  It's a bit lower on my plate but should work nonetheless.

The Cisco router doesn't suppor ipv6 properly on bridged interfaces (BVIs).  You see this problem with wifi because the wireless controller (and wireless clients) terminate on the router directly.

Wired is different because wired users are external to the router and get their autoconfigure address off another router.  

So there isn't anything to do to resolve this short of replacing hardware (separating wifi & the router).
