I see from output you posted previously your router supports stateful
address configuration, but you didn't post any output regarding
autonomous address configuration. I don't expect the following to make
a difference, but just in case, can you change in

iface eth0 inet6 dhcp


iface eth0 inet6 auto

followed by a reboot for good measure to see if that makes a difference?

Based on your description, I don't think sending the actual output
would be enlightening. However, if you would like to share the output
from tcpdump, or some textual equivalent from wireshark, I can take a
look. If you share an image and not something in text form, I won't be
able to help. Also, if this is lengthy, it's probably a good idea to
just post a link to it rather than sending all of it to the entire
list membership.

That's as it should be.
