I see no reason to disable IPv6, it has never bothered my setup.
Have your checked to find all your adapters, under system, open ea one and make sure the "All this device to turnoff to save power" IS NOT CHECKED.

Some systems have a many adapters as 3... make sure every adapter is set the same. "NOT TO ALLOW DEVICES TO TURNOFF TO SAVE POWER."
