Windows 7: IpV6 Not Connected

IpV6 Not Connected

So Ill go through the whole day and what I did etc.

I installed the newest drivers into my AR9285 wireless card restarted my computer and than the internet wouldnt work. So I did a rollback on my drivers to the previous version and my internet still did not work. The IpV4 and IPV6 said not connected. So on a whim I uninstalled my driver completely and let windows reinstall it on reboot which it did. I am now connected to IPV4 but not IPV6 anymore. I attached my IPconfig.

I have also noticed that my internet connection is alot slower now than it was. I can connect to the internet most of the time but sometimes it still is a issue.

Most people don't use IPv6: IPv6 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Its relatively new, and is introduced only because IPv4 is running out of addresses.

If you are having internet problems, that is not the cause

For wireless connection:
Go to the manufacturer of your network adapter and click on driver downloads to your exact model. Download it and once it is finished, go into control panel>Uninstall a Program.

Look for every installation of your adapter (adapter only, do not uninstall something else with a similar name and mistake it for your adapter, as I've done before). Uninstall every version that you have installed already. Then install the new one you've just downloaded and follow its guide, entering all the proper information to get you going. If that doesn't solve it, than I would go to check your router next.

Do you have LAN or Wireless? Are you connected to a router?

The OP is Wireless... and almost certainly behind a router, as they have a 24 hour lease. (and it's wireless)

You don't need IPv6. Although Windows 7 does use Ipv6 for things like Homegroups, most of that is done by a 4to6 connection using Teredo. I don't know the specifics there, but Teredo plays an important part.

The reason for this is the entire 192.168.x.x range has been reserved for internal use only. This means that you can have an internal network, and it will never get confused and try to connect to an external source (least that's the reasoning I assume....) There are a few other reserved ranges too, but 192.168.x.x is the most common. Your EXTERNAL IP (the one being broadcast to the rest of the internet) may be IPv6 but you're router handles that, the IP address that you see is almost certainly Ipv4.
You are never going to run out of internal addresses.... certainly not on a home network. Can't imagine many people needing 65,636 addresses (which the 192.168.x.x range has alone)

On to the speed issue.

Log on to your router (probably at 192.168.1.1 but it's whatever the default gateway is that you removed from your first post.) and find the Statistics/internet/broadband page. Then answer this fun list of questions

1. What sort of connection is it? ADSL? Cable? Wireless/Satellite (unlikely...)
2. What's your sync speed? What speeds do you get from site's like Speedtest.net?
3. If DSL/ADSL What's your attenuation?
4. What's your SNR Margin?
5. what speed should you be getting?

I apologize for not replying to you guys but I found the solution.

Updating to the newest driver for the AR9285 created all the problems. When I rolled back to version 8.0.0.316 everything is now working. I can connect to both IpV4 and 6 and the connection speed is still a little slower. The speed is only about a 50Kpbs difference from normal after testing. Also the internet does not cut out and stays constant now.

Just some info for you guys to perhaps help people in the future. Atheros Driver 8.0.0.316 is the most stable with windows 7. The newest version 9.2.0.16 is not stable on windows 7 and the internet connection speed fluxulates ALOT and the wireless card also disconnects ALOT. This has been reported a whole bunch in HP and COMPAQ forums. It seems this wireless card is junk with windows 7 but has no problems with XP or VISTA.

Also thanks for your time, and thanks for reading my post. I typed it very quickly and I was flustered after loosing internet for most of the day so most of it did not make sense or convey anything that I wanted to convey accurately lol. Again thanks for you time.
