running windows 6 64 bit. 2 640 gig western digital blues in rid 0, 8 gigs of ram in dual channel, E8400 cpu, 1 tb drive for documents, page file, temp directory. i have the atheros L1 10/100/1000 ethrnet adaoter on board. viewing status of the conection underi ipv4-internet, ipv6 no internet access. ipv6 is checked, linktopology etc etc is all checked. ipconfig /all shows an ipc6 address. how do i enabe ipv6 internet acess. i now that if i use himegriuo nd create my network that way i could talk to the network using iov6. id ike to br able to usr ipv6 for my intr=ernet/www access thanx in advance.
My isp supports IPV 6 though it's not currently in use , so it has to be enabled . Go to View network connections double click the network icon and select properties. The IPV4 and 6 check-box are located there.
im not sure if time warner cable nyc road runer is using it yet. ill have to find out because ive read dozens of articles and i have the right boxes checked and the apprpriate services running. still no ipv6 internet. if i find RR does not have it in use yet ill just turn off all that wasted use of services and things. save some memory, not that i need it.
Assuming this list is up-to-date it looks like Time Warner doesn't support IPV6 yet. As well as the ISP your router would need to support it.
The alternative, as I said before, is to use a tunnel. Other than for experimentation there's not a lot of reasons to do that (unless you need to connect to a v6 only website). Of course we'll all have to do it some time, but I don't think that time has yet arrived.
