IPv6 Problems

I am trying to setup an IPv6 network.

I modified the interfaces file:

Code:
/etc/network/interfaces
# 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
Code:
root@server1:/home/server1# ifconfig

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

ping6 to local host

Code:
server1@server1:~$ ping6  localhost
PING localhost(localhost) 56 data bytes
64 bytes from localhost: icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=0.066 ms

rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 0.066/0.078/0.088/0.009 ms

I am totally confused

To add to my confusion:

Code:
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
