Windows 7: Is it normal to get DHCPv6-Client event 1006 events every 2 minutes ?

Is it normal to get DHCPv6-Client event 1006 events every 2 minutes ?

Hello all i am totally new here so i wasn't absolutely sure what section to ask this question so please don't shoot me if i guessed wrong. To keep this short and sweet i get this event message every 2 min or less.

Router Advertisement settings have been changed on the network adapter 11. The current M - Managed Address Configuration flag is true and the O - Other Stateful Configuration flag is true. User Action: If you are seeing this event frequently, then it could be due to frequent change in M and O flag settings on the router in the network. Please contact your network administrator to have it resolved.

I know it's not a error but informational. But what's strange is if i go to a system image of a know good point where i only get the message on restart. It doesn't reoccur until i restart again instead of every 2 min, so i am lead to beleive its not normal behavior. I am on a wired optimum modem and router. The router is a D-Link DIR 868L. And i have Cable internet and Bitdefender 2015 TS
I have tried my best to research this but most of the info is from 2009 and half of the threads say to disable IPv6 from adapter properties to make error go away but i have read that is not a good solution because certain programs use it for windows 7.

I finally solved this issue by the following ways, contacting optimum who pointed me to contact Microsoft who was kind enough to connect to my desktop pc remotely and troubleshoot that is was a actual router setting that was bad " for free can you believe it " and to contact D-Link. Well optimum uses there own firmware for D-Link routers lol " not sure what firmware is ". Long story short brought router back and exchanged it and guess what? Solved.

DHCPv6-client errors in event viewer
Every 7 minutes this error is logged in event viewer. I have wired connection disabled, wireless connection works fine. It actually works much better than it did with XP Pro. Lan transfers are much faster. What's causing this and how to stop it?
