Okay, I switched DNS servers and it works. I have not noticed a difference, but we will see.

They have different address lengths (32 vs 128 bits).
I don't understand, does that mean that 68.105.211.11 as one of those that I entered into TCP/IPv4 can't be used in TCP/IPv6, or that it has to be done differently?

EDIT: I'm going on the idea that even if TCP/IPv6 isn't mainstream, that it is still sometimes used somewhere.
Hi and welcome

yep there is both a change int th IPv6 addressing. we know the 192.169.1.1 numbers the IPv6 uses 6 pairs tha are alpha numeric, cant even show you becuase I have it turned off

Ipv6 is going to be for when we run out of numbers... Eventually, and sooner than we think, we're going to run out...

Not really. That's what NAT is for. It's all really hype. Years from now, we'll all still be using IPv4.

do an ipconfig if you have ivp6 enabled

So for the time being IPv6 is totally useless?

While you are right, so am I. NAT and IPv6 technologies are going to be dealing with the IPv4 exhaustion.

The latest estimate that I have for the exhaustion of available IPv4 addresses even allowing for NAT and other technologies is sometime in 2012 (perhaps the Mayans knew something )

Google is the first of the main net heavyweights to support IPv6 addressing. hardware may need to be updated to work with IPv6 although for most recent equipment this will just be a firmware upgrade

From that output, I don't even know that I have IPv4 enabled. At least I don't see the DNS addresses that I put into the adapter:

Try ipconfig /all in an elevated command prompt that will give you all the information
