Hi. It's a common misunderstanding and I belive it is describebed 
somewhere in the documentation. Nevertheless, here's short descripion:

DHCPv6 provides addresses and verious options, it DOES NOT configures 
routing. Routing configuration is done by the router, which sends Router 
Advertisements (see radvd for Linux, I'm not sure how to configure 
Windows router to broadcast RAs). See RFC2462 "IPv6 Stateless Address 
Autoconfiguration" for details.

Hope that helps.
