IPv6 Problems

I am trying to setup an IPv6 network.

I modified the interfaces file:

# The loopback network interface
auto lo
iface lo inet loopback

iface etho0 inet static
        address 2620:7:a000::1
        netmask 64
        gateway  ::ffff:c0a8:101

ifconfig shows this

ping6 to google
server1@server1:~$ ping6 ipv6.google.com
connect: Network is unreachable

ping6 to local host

server1@server1:~$ ping6  localhost

I am totally confused

To add to my confusion:

root@server1:/home/server1#  host -t AAAA www.cyberciti.biz
www.cyberciti.biz has no AAAA record

root@server1:/home/server1# lsmod | grep -qw ipv6 && echo "IPv6 kernel driver loaded and configured." || echo "IPv6 not configured and/or driver loaded on the system."
IPv6 not configured and/or driver loaded on the system.

root@server1:/home/server1# ip -6 addr show

    inet6 ::1/128 scope host 
       valid_lft forever preferred_lft forever
3: wlan0: <BROADCAST,MULTICAST,UP,LOWER_UP> mtu 1500 qlen 1000
