Should I enable IPv6 now? Tags: Ipv4 Ipv6 Networking Last response: June 7, 2012 12:40 AM in Networking Share Bombhead June 6, 2012 10:53:01 AM I disabled it, nothing and nowhere used it. However, just read this: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-18338948 So it's now active and running side by side with IPv4. Do you think it's safe to enable IPv6 and disable IPv4 now? I don't really wanna try it until verified, knowing my luck something will go KA-BOOM!

If it ain't broke don't fix it... On the other hand, if you feel like playing it probably won't go ka-boom, at worst you'll lose connectivity until you disable IPv6 again. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Networking>Should I enable IPv6 now?> Related ressources: ForumIpv6 ForumIPv4 connected to internet but IPv6 no Internet access HELP!
