Was ID's wireless router broadcasting IPv6 addresses/routes? It 
shouldn't matter whether the IPv6 is enabled or not otherwise.

World IPv6 Day, part II, is June 8, 2012—on that day IPv6 will be turned 
on and *left* on.

I always have problems w/ ID's WiFi, with WiFi working on both my laptop 
and phone everywhere else. I still blame their router.
