    Funny, I disable IPv6 on all machines as a security practice, and disable Teredo Tunneling (Worm) and IsaTap to go along with that. Run CMD in administrator (Start, CMD then CTRL+Shift+Enter).

    netsh int ipv6 isatap set state disabled
    netsh int ipv6 6to4 set state disabled
    netsh interface teredo set state disable

    I also disable IPv6 within Windows network (disable everything but IPv4, including MS Sharing, and QOS, since a good router has QOS anyway) and I disable IPv6 on all Routers. Quite a number of reasons why you should do this - frankly.
