You are extremely unlikely to be using ipv6 - A 2008 study by Google indicated that penetration was still less than one percent of Internet-enabled hosts in any country. The leaders were Russia (0.76%), France (0.65%), Ukraine (0.64%), Norway (0.49%), and the United States (0.45%).
So unless you have a private network to connect you to all these other IPV6 users, you are using IPV4 like the rest of us...

2. Once in Control Panel click on Network and Sharing Center

3. Click on Change Adapter Settings, located in the upper left hand corner

After your computer reboots IPV6 will be turned off for the network connection you turned it off in. Note IPV6 is not a standard yet so you should not have trouble with leaving it off. However not some programs have already had IPV6 support added to them so if you have trouble you may want to turn it back on as a part of troubleshooting the issue.

How to determine your computer's MAC address

Applies to Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7

1. Click Start - Run

2. Next enter "CMD" and click OK

3. Next at the command prompt type "ipconfig /all" and press enter

At this point all your active connections will list on the screen. Note you may need to scroll back up the window to get to the MAC address info you need. Also keep in mine if you are connected to your wired or wireless connection because both will have a MAC address assigned to them and they will be different.

4. Look under the Local Area Connection if connected to your network via a wired connection or Wireless Network Connection if connecting via a wreless connection.

Once under the right connection you will want to look for the line that shows "Physical Address" this will have what the network cards MAC Address listed.

Note if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 and you access a lot of different networks then you may have a lot of Tunnel Adapters list that causes overflow in the CMD buffer. If this happens the top part of the "ipconfig /all" report will get cut off. To fix this all you need to is turn off IPV6 in your network properties and reboot your computer. This will remove the ones that are tied to IPV6. After you reboot you should be able to see MAC address for your netork devices. After you get the MAC address it is recommended that you turn IPV6 back on because there is some programs that have been writen for IPV6 for when it becomes a standard.

Find proxy server address

Changing TCP/IP settings Win 7 TCP/IP defines how your computer communicates with other computers.
To make it easier to manage TCP/IP settings, we recommend using automated Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP). DHCP automatically assigns Internet Protocol (IP) addresses to the computers on your network, if your network supports it. If you use DHCP, then you don't have to change your TCP/IP settings if you move your computer to another location, and DHCP doesn't require you to manually configure TCP/IP settings, such as Domain Name System (DNS) and Windows Internet Name Service (WINS). To enable DHCP or change other TCP/IP settings, follow these steps:
  1. Open Network Connections by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818.jpg, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, typeadapter, and then, under Network and Sharing Center, click View network connections.
  2. Right-click the connection that you want to change, and then click Properties. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48.jpg If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  3. Click the Networking tab. Under This connection uses the following items, click either Internet Protocol Version 4 (TCP/IPv4) or Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6), and then click Properties. 25e7e385-9327-4f7d-aab0-afa5aaf952ba_49.jpgThe Network Connection Properties dialog box
  4. To specify IPv4 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IP address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IP address, and then, in the IP address, Subnet mask, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  5. To specify IPv6 IP address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get IP settings automatically using DHCP, click Obtain an IPv6 address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify an IP address, click Use the following IPv6 address, and then, in the IPv6 address, Subnet prefix length, and Default gateway boxes, type the IP address settings.
  6. To specify DNS server address settings, do one of the following:
    • To get a DNS server address automatically using DHCP, click Obtain DNS server address automatically, and then click OK.
    • To specify a DNS server address, click Use the following DNS server addresses, and then, in the Preferred DNS server and Alternate DNS server boxes, type the addresses of the primary and secondary DNS servers.

The ipv6 on my laptop wont connect eventhough the box is checked. how do i get it to work?

You currently only require IP4 to be operational for connection to the internet. IP4 is basically address which consist of four groups of numbers in the range 0 to 255 e.g.
IPV6 is to allow more address by adding another two groups e.g.

Failure of IPV6 is not going to prevent access to the internet.

Try deleting or uninstalling the network driver and re-installing it, or updating it.

GETCE6B1, Internet Protocol Version 6 Not Available

The 'IPV4' (Internet Protocol Version 4) was designed for a world with 4 billion unique devices (desktops, laptops, netbooks, iPod Touch/Phone, IP-TV, cell-phones, et cetera).

That limit is being reached!

The newer 'IPV6' (Internet Protocol Version 6) was designed to give a unique IPV6 address for EVERY SQUARE INCH of surface of our planet.

So, if your computer is "talking" to an IPV6 device (router or modem), you should _NOT_ get "IPV6 not available". However, if your computer is "talking" using IPV4, you probably _WILL_ get the IPV6 not available" message.

No big deal. If your computer cannot "talk" IPV6, then it should "talk" IPV4.

Hello, i have a hp notebook which code 31 error on
Microsoft says to Ignore the problem, and the adapter will continue to work correctly. If the message is really annoying maybe you can try turning off IPv6.
Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections

right click your network card>properties
uncheck the IPv6 box
that'll turn off IPv6-then just disable the adapter driver
