XB6 Bridge Mode and IPV6

I thought I knew what I was doing for the most part, but this IPV6 stuff has thrown me for a loop.


I just updated to the XB6 modem, and the fact that I can't change the DHCP or DNS is silly, so I bridged it to a TP Link Archer C2300.


Now, I can't figure out how to get IPV6 to work.


I have options for Static IP, Dynamic IP (SLAAC/DHCPv6), PPPoE, 6to4 Tunnel, or Pass-Through (Bridge). 


Advanced options include:


IPv6 address from DHCPv6 or SLACC.

Prefix Delegation (Enable or Disable)


And then for the LAN:

Assigned Type:  DHCPv6, SLAAC+Stateless DHCP, SLAAC+RDNSS

Address Prefix:  (box) /64


I've tried a variety of combinations, but can't seem to get anything working.


Can I get IPv6 working when the modem is bridged?


Am I an idiot?  (Or, better question:  How big of an idiot am I?)


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
