Now that you answered question #1 for him I wanted to know what actually would it do to turn it off even if we haven't gone IPv6 yet.
Do you think it would speed anything up on the internet using IE8?
Just wondering.

Would un-ticking the IPV6 help my internet connection run smoother since I have IPv4 connectivity?

As far as i can tell Ipv6 in w7's scheme of things is there to support the notion of it's Homegroup (i have not come across any other features of w7 that relies on ipv6 to be on to work). Homegroup in w7 im my opinnion is somewhat a cosmetic feature rather than a "networking" feature (if you can uderstand what i mean by that). If you are referring to ipv6 in the true sense, it's usage i believe at this very moment in time, is not at a "user's" level (that is you and i), rather at a higher end usually by big ISPs or Corporations. That said, you can try and disabled ipv4 and try putting in a static ip ipv6. Let me know if it works.

Do you think it would speed anything up on the internet using IE8?

Sounds like a trick question. Why would having ipv6 speed up internet access using IE8? What about IE7?
Well in my opinion, as ipv6 is to broaden the scope of network addressing, which is independent of the the medium of which data travels through (eg Cables, wireless), based on this i would currently have to say no. In future when the world really did run out of ipv4 addressing then maybe yes, but ipv6 alone won't do it, the hardware needs to play a role too. These are my 2 cents.

I know how to disable the IPv4 (unclicking it), but how would I go about putting a static IP IPv6? I'm a noob to this.

The same way you would when you put in tcp/ipv4. In your Properties of your network adapter.
Btw, do you have an ipv6 address to put in?

I wanted to know what these properties were, and what everyone else's settings were for them.
