That's just normal IPv6 behavior - the router solicitation is a request for information from a router to find out what network is available. If an advertisement arrives it means that there is an IPv6 enabled router, providing that information. Usually a computer will then create a IPv6 address and start registering to various multicast group (e.g. there is no ARP available for IPv6, so instead you need ICMPv6 multicast to find layer 2 addresses).
