A common mistake for people to make is setting a route like this:
3ffe::/16	via gateway <your uplink>

Which will make your router only forward packets destined for the 6bone.
A better route would be (2000 chosen for esthetical reasons):
2000::/3	via gateway <your uplink>

Which will route traffic for 2001::/16, 2002::/16 (6to4) and 3ffe::/16 (6bone)
over your box. Good luck!
