Hello :) I've got 2 unknown ipv6 connections showing up in my "connected hosts" list but they are definitely not my devices :( I've changed my wlan password (psk2) and they're still showing up; is there a way to disable Ipv6 all together?

Many thanks 🙏

Not in any meaningful way. IPv6 is very heavy baked into the firmware at the kernel level.
You can try
- disable WAN6 (should already be done in 1.12)
- remove ULA prefix

You might also be able to disable some routing level functions using sysctl. None of this is supported in the GUI.

I'm also sure if you looked a little closer you would find they are your devices, you just don't recognise them.
