The presence of DHCPv6 should not break Android devices (have not seen
it before).
Try it and see what happens? The only theory I have is that by
'activating DHCPv6'  your CPE actually means 'disabling SLAAC'. Then
yes, it would break things.

Get the Creator update ;) Then it would work with RDNSS ;)
