How To Reset IPv6 To Default Settings & Repair Interface Creation Issues

The next version of Internet Protocol, namely IPv6, will succeed IPv4 in coming years, owing to the fact that IPv4 is running out of addresses. When all the available IPv4 addresses are allocated, IPv6 will be implemented across the world to let users establish connection and transfer data via internet. Since Windows supports both IPv4 and IPv6 version, many software that work using Internet Protocol can change IPv6 settings, which may block access to network interface. One simple solution for such issues is to manually restore the default IPv6 settings, but if you don’t know where to start off troubleshooting the issues, try using Reset IPv6. It’s a small application for Windows that lets you reset IPv6 within a few clicks. The tool is especially useful when you encounter errors like failure to open tunnel adapter, failure on interface creation, etc. This saves you the time which you’d have spent resetting the IPv6 settings manually.

How To Disable IPv6 In Windows 7

You might have heard about IPv6, it is the latest address protocol that will eventually replace IPv4. From Windows Vista onward it has been kept enabled by default, but it is also a fact that IPv6 is not yet common and many software, routers, modems, and other network equipment do not support it yet. So it may be a wise approach to disable it for now. We can also disable it by simply unchecking it from the Local Area Network Properties window, but this is not a permanent way to get rid of it. It gets enabled again once the system is restarted, so in order to permanently disable it, open the registry editor in Windows 7 & Vista by clicking Start, then type regedit and hit Enter.
