The DHCP client in my mikrotik router never obtains a ipv6 address or prefix, when connected to internet. I understand I need a prefix, so the devices on my lan can get a valid external IP.

However when I connect my laptop everything works as expected?

    Just asking for a prefix got me a reply... – Paul van Brenk Nov 12 '17 at 22:57

figured out I needed to only ask for a prefix, then setup a DHCP server, and add an ipv6 address.

This post on the mikrotik forum was pretty clear.
