Description

In certain cases an IPv6 link-local gateway is not marked as default in the Dashboard widget or on status_gateways.php even when it is default.

This appears to be due to the gateway entry lacking the scope on the LL address, which is present in the routing table.

It is up and working, monitoring shows it as online. GUI status shows the gateway address without scope, but the Monitor address includes the scope (see attached image)

: cat /tmp/vmx0_routerv6
fe80::208:a2ff:fe09:95b5
: route -n6 get default
   route to: ::
destination: ::
       mask: ::
    gateway: fe80::208:a2ff:fe09:95b5%vmx0
        fib: 0
  interface: vmx0
      flags: <UP,GATEWAY,DONE,STATIC>
 recvpipe  sendpipe  ssthresh  rtt,msec    mtu        weight    expire
       0         0         0         0      1500         1         0
: netstat -rWn6 | grep default
default                           fe80::208:a2ff:fe09:95b5%vmx0 UGS         269   1500     vmx0

Since it's cosmetic only, it's minor and can wait.

In this case, the gateway is from the WAN interface which is set to DHCPv6.
