this box have? I had assumed two; one "internal" (LAN) and one directly
connected to your DSL modem (PPPoE).

PPPoE seems to be using eth0.2 as the underlying interface but eth0 (no
alias) is also set up as a layer 3/addressed interface.

Try removing eth0.2 from the dhcpv6 config. The interface you use for PPPoE
doesn't need to be IP-enabled.
