Description mathew 2012-05-24 19:57:54 UTC
Brand new install of Kubuntu 12.04, went to set up my wireless network.

On the IPv6 Address tab, I am given the following options:

Automatic (DHCP)
Automatic (DHCP) address only

None of these are correct for my network. For my network, I use the normal IPv6 address allocation option, which is IPv6 Stateless Address Autoconfiguration (SLAAC).

So there should be an option added:

Automatic (SLAAC)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set up a new network connection in System Settings.
2. Go to IPv6 tab.
3. Examine available options.
Actual Results:  
I decided I'd go without IPv6 for the time being, and chose "Disabled". However, when I go to the command line and enter   ip addr   I discover that IPv6 isn't disabled; it has been configured via SLAAC and has a 2002:: address.

Expected Results:  
Expected option for stateless autoconfiguration of IPv6 address.

Expected "Disabled" to actually disable IPv6.
