Yeah, I learned about IPv6 the hard way! I assumed IPv6 was not needed since my ISP was years away from enabling it!

@CHEV65. Thank you, great answers. Yes I do have a router, so I will play around with the DNS settings. Do you think it is better using Google as a DNS server, as opposed to using my default gateway/ISP DNS servers?
Thanks

Personally I think yes because if a lot of people in your area use the same ISP and happen to be using the internet and it goes into being heavy traffic then imo it is better to use Google DNS server if you are based in the US.

Interesting article, I'm from the UK and might go back to my ISP instead of Google -> http://apcmag.com/why-using-google-d...a-bad-idea.htm

I wouldn't trust Google. It is probably recording everything that comes through it's DNS servers to sell to whoever wants the info.

Thanks mate. I'm from South Africa, so it might be a good idea to keep my DNS settings as is...Don't fix if it ain't broken right...thank you for the answers!

Don't worry, IPv4 will be on market for a long time. IPv6 will eventually replace it. Whenever it will be the case, it will be backwards compatible meaning you will still have internet access. Your ISP will take care of this.
