This document discusses some scenarios when IPv6 hosts might not be able to properly detect the fact the network they are connected to has changed IPv6 addressing. It proposes changes to the Default Address Selection algorithm defined in [RFC6724] to mitigate the impact of the abovementioned failure scenarios as well as provides recommendations for sending Prefix Information Options (PIO). It updated [RFC6724].
