New IPv6 Problem

For various reasons, I now have to use wireless instead of wired, and now my IPv6 doesn't work.

I checked other computers in the house, and noticed that it only works for wired connections, but not wireless.

Is there anyway to fix it? (Note: Only tested if it worked by going to ipv6.google.com)

Has your ISP adopted IPv6?
Is your router IPv6 capable?
If not, no need for it!

Router is a Cisco WRT610N

ISP is xFinity.

But How would either of those explain why only wired has it? (And when I say wired, I mean wired into the router, not the modem for xfinity)

Wow, that router does support IPv6, but I'd turn it off as surely your ISP isnt running it yet.
The Linksys WRT610N Router can support and work on IPv6 protocol, But it dosent have any settings to turn it off on your router. Thats you can do it on your Operating System. Go to Start - Control Pannel - Network Connections - Right Click on your Local Area Connection / Wireless Network Connections ( Which you need to Disable IPv6) - Properties and Uncheck IPv6 Stack and Click on OK. Bydefault IPv4 Stack will be checked, if it is not you can Check IPv4 and uncheck IPv6 and click Ok, and Reboot your computer.

But I don't want to turn IPv6 off. I want to try to use it with wireless.

Why do you want to use ipv6, is there a specific reason?
