Hello Sebastian,

thanks for the reply. I'm using openwrt as a BR distro with odhcpd 
handling the RA (and also dhcpv6). The setup works between a Pi-Pi 
(although my second Pi in the PAN uses dhcpv6 for getting an IP, so 
that is not a proof of a working solution so far.

I will switch SD cards later today to the raspbian distro and will 
setup a BR with radvd, just so I make sure the setup works. If 
everything works with raspbian, I'll go back to openwrt and will try to 
find the problem there. Bare with me, I might have more questions 

Thanks for the support.
