Scroll down the page and you will see where the check box for ipv6 is located. It also shows you where to change your DNS

You can turn back IPv6 on by right clicking your adapter and checking the box as per screenshot below:

Now, the DHCP problem is certainly not DNS-related, so I wouldn't mess with the DNS settings.

You can assign your computer a static IP address that is outside your router's DCHP scope and avoid DHCP issues, while tracking down the problem (or permanently). Let me know your router model and I can walk you trough it, if you wish.

Btw, are any computers on your network with a static IP? This could be messing with the DHCP, if not done right.

Thanks doctore. I got my IPV6 box checked again. My router is a Lynksys EA2700. I don't know anything about what a DHCP is and I don't know if there are any computers or other devices on my network with a static IP, and obviously don't know how to find out.

I noticed in some previous posts some were suggesting something about setting something to and but I'm not sure what they were talking about, whether it is a good idea or why or how I would do that.

I really appreciate your help on this!!!

Assuming you haven't done any changes to the router - go to your network adapter, open the properties like the previous screenshot I posted, but this time double-click "IPv4" (make sure that you don't uncheck it!). When the new window opens, select "Use the following IP address" and enter it exactly as it appears on the screenshot below. You should be all set.

As far as changing to - you don't need to do it, but I have put in the DNS, just in case.
