Windows 7: IPv6 only

20 Oct 2012   #1

Windows Server 2008 R2, 64 bits
IPv6 only

*** Please don't read this thread because I have more info now and my problem now becomes a different problem. The problem below is not relevant any more. Sorry. ****************

Suppose we are talking about Win 7.
I have this ADSL router at home:
P-660HN-T1A, Wireless N-lite, ADSL2/2+ 4-port Gateway. (Zyxel brand)
In network connections window, I opened properties page of wireless NIC.
I unchecked IPv4.
I checked IPv6.
I tried to open an internet webpage but it was unsuccessfully.
How do I configure Win 7 so that my NIC will only use IPv6 and I can open internet webpage?

Do I need IPv6 and which ones ?
I'm stuck with a slow file transfer (laptop to Nas) and I have tried a few things like turning off RDC and 'Disable TCP/IP “Receive Window Auto-Tuning” and/or “Receive Side Scaling” in Windows 7' but to no avail. I then read that changing the IPv6 settings may help but I don't know which ones I...

I have set up a HomeGroup on one laptop and then I tried to connect to the same HomeGroup on my second laptop. On the second computer I entered the correct password but was then told that IPv6 must first be enabled. I have verified that the box next to IPv6 is checked on both computers. ...
