Configuration parameters in lwipopts.h:

/* LWIP_IPV6_SEND_ROUTER_ADVERTISE==1, nd6 will send ra and accpet rs
     When a netif is up, ra will be sent 3 times after every 2 seconds,
     then, each ra will be sent after every 600 seconds.
     The procedure of ra sending is in nd6_tmr which is called every 1 seconds.
     RFC4861 suggests random ra interval to reduce the probability
     of synchronization with ra from other routers on the same link.
     In our case, there is only one router on one link, so random is unnecesary.

Recently I added support for sending Router Advertisement in ND6 and posted here for anyone who is interested in it and anyone who may want to improve it.
3 files are involved, ie, netif.h, icmp6.c, nd6.c.
Currently, router solicitation handling (just skip link layer address option), router advertisement sending are supported.
The attachment is the diff file.
