Windows 7: Ran fixit to enable IPV6 but still no IPV6

Ran fixit to enable IPV6 but still no IPV6

I'm trying to enable IPV6 on my PC but I can't figure out what I'm doing wrong. I ran the Microsoft fixit to enable IPV6 and I rebooted. Now when I check here:

Test your IPv6.

It still says:

"No IPv6 address detected".
"Your DNS server (possibly run by your ISP) appears to have IPv6 Internet access."

What can I do to get it enabled? I'm using Google DNS. The box for it is also checked in my Network and Sharing Center properties.

My ISP doesn't support IPv6. My DNS Lookup Provider is Comodo Secure DNS and as far as I know it doesn't support IPv6.

You can try Google DNS with IPv6 support but most website servers don't use it yet:

The Google Public DNS IP addresses (IPv4) are as follows:
8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

The Google Public DNS IPv6 addresses are as follows:
2001:4860:4860::8888
2001:4860:4860::8844

If you try it let us all know if it works!

Quick note to say that I've enabled IPv6 and checked settings as shown here:

It doesn't work for me so I'm off to check my router settings (some routers only have IPv4) and see if I can enable it that way!

Here's what I think:

My ISP does not support IPv6 (yet) so only the IPv4 settings do anything regardless as to whether they are my ISP's servers or OpenDNS or other servers.

Thank you - I will give it a try. Currently I just had the IPv4 addresses in my router. I'm assuming if I use IPv6 addresses then IPv4 will still function correctly through them for services that use IPv4?

Okay, I found out where to put in my IPv6 address (in my verizon Actiontec router it's under Advanced settings>IPv6. I have both addresses in and under IPv6 LAN Configuration I have stateless selected (default I believe and I think that's what Windows uses by default. But when I go to Test your IPv6.

it still tells me I don't have IPv6. So I'm confused. What am I doping wrong?

Under Windows Local Area Connection status, it says:

IPv6 Connectivity: No network access

Check that your ISP supports IPv6. Mine doesn't so no matter what I do - it won't work.

Here's my settings:

Browser:

Network Adapter:

Ran fixit to enable IPV6 but still no IPV6-internet-protocol-version-6-tcp_ipv6-properties.jpg

Also tried "Obtain DNS Server Address Automatically" - no luck.

Check the info here:

IPv6 Test and Dual-Stack Test For Network Connectivity

Will let you know if I manage to get it working.

ISP does not support IPv6 for me just yet and I've checked my ISP's website to confirm.

I just got off the phone with my ISP (Verizon FiOS) and they informed me that they do not support IPv6 currently. I'm very surprised at this since their Actiotec router has the settings to support it. I guess that explains why I can't get it to work

From what I see in Verizon forums they don't support it even though they've been promising it for over 2 years now. Thanks for trying to help - at least i wasn't doing anything wrong on my end.
