Unless the Usenet addresses you are using point to IPv6 addresses, they ARE using IPv4. Like I said in a previous post, IPv6 is only used when it is used. Also Windows 7 is using the same networking stack as Windows Vista and the same IPv6 implementation. And just like Windows 7, Vista tries to make use of IPv6 when available.
IPv6 is NOT known to cause "random slowdowns, drops, connectivity problems." If you are having trouble with IPv6 I suggest you fix the real cause, your drivers/hardware.
Nor is Homegroup even involved in this process. Homegroup is a SMBv2 layer service that works only at the local network level, it does not get involved with remote connections (aka., internet applications).
