    OK I have a Linksys WRT160N V3 and an Asus RT-N12 B1 both running your MOD (K26 MIPSR2 and K26 RT-N), newest version, with he.net's IPV6 tunnel.
    I have a Nexus 4 running Android 4.4.2, when connected to WiFi, stay for a while (a few hours) and IPV6 gateway disappear. Both router I mention above cause this problem. Using other routers as AP causes same problem. I turn off WiFi optimization in the phone's setting (this should reduce power usage when connected to WiFi) and IPV6 always works (with any AP). Meanwhile IPV4 always works no matter which AP I am using and no matter WiFi optimization is on or not.
    All wired devices work fine. All notebook PCs connected with WiFi work fine. I have asked Google and they said that this is not their fault. Can you spare some time to find out what's going wrong? Thanks.

    i have Android`s phone 4.2.1 and ipv6 works correct. If (as you said) all others devices haven`t this problem well IMO it`s not a problem with tomato. You can also install AsusWRT firmware on RT-N12 and check. Propably you will got the same issue.

    Did you check in the internet, maybe others users of nexus (or others phones with 4.4 kitkat) have the same problem?

    Edit: Disregard - I don't use IPv6 on my Android phone running Kitkat...

    Thanks for your reply.
    When my Nexus 4 was running Android 4.2.x, IPv6 works great.
    I have checked in the internet and it seems I am the only poor guy who encounter this problem.
    N12 is the main router of a company which I work for so I cannot do any test easily. A colleague of mine using SGS3 running Android 4.3 are willing to help me, later we will have a result.
    It seems Google will fix some bugs about IPv6 on Android 4.4.3 and let's see if this works.

    Another question about my Nexus 4 and wifi. With BCM-based AP (no matter it running a stock ROM or your Tomato MOD), copy some files with a Windows PC using samba, it gets a slow transmit rate (approx. 500kbyte/s); with a Atheros-based AP, it can reach 1+mbyte/s. Shibby what do you think?

    I have encounter this problem since my Nexus 4 upgrade to Android 4.3, If you have any Qualcomm-based Android device running 4.3+, with a setting called "WiFi optimization" in Setttings-Wifi-Advanced, please help to check.

    That's strange... I've tried to flash factory image of my phone for times, 4.2.x always works but 4.3+ fails.
    Can you tell me what's your phone's model?

    Did you turn off WiFi optimization in Settings-WiFi-Advanced?
    I turn this setting off and IPv6 works, but costs extra battery usage.

    Nexus 7 2013 tablet with stock Google KitKat KOT49H 4.4.2 and Samsung i9100 with OmniRom KVT49L 4.4.2 all work fine here.

    So it's certain that I am the unlucky guy.
    Let it be, I will certainly get a new Nexus 6 later this year (if Google still rolling out a Nexus phone).
