If you are having internet connection problems in Vista Home then one possible solution is to disable IPv6.
Here’s how to do it:
- Start > Control Panel > View Network Status and tasks (under Network and Internet)
- Chose Manage Network Connections on the left side menu
- Right click Local Area Connection and choose Properties
- In the pop-up box, uncheck the following:
- Internt Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6)
- Click OK and then RESTART your computer..
As far as I am aware the worse that this can do right now is slow your connection. However, some people say that it speeds it up – and if like me you were losing your connection several times a day, then a slightly slower permanent connection is far better than having to reboot 5 times a day.
My question is – why the hell is Vista shipped with this new technology and no mention of the possible problems it causes? There are tens of thousands of search results for this problem, especially for wireless users. So why no patch?
