It happened again. The connection went down, then came back up, went down, and 
came back up again. I see two problems:
1. It has an IPv4 address, which is correct according to what the laptop has, 
but refuses to allow any packets in or out on IPv4. Running tcpdump shows, 
though, that it can read IPv4 packets sent by the other hosts on the network. 
Reloading /etc/pf.conf does not fix this.
2. The IPv6 gateway is fe80:*, which is wrong. However, the route to the 
laptop is correct.
