    Wanted to make a poll, but I couldn't figure out how. Answers would be appreciated. I see no reason to keep it installed and using resources, but so far I've left it alone. What do you guys think about IPV6?

    I'd leave it installed. Eventually ipv6 will be necessary. FYI, im pretty sure utorrent uses it in some way.

    I have Sixxs tunnel with own subnet for my whole network.

    If you get ipv6 you need to get native ipv6 from your ISP or HE/Sixxs tunnel. Something that is relaible... already intergrated teredo tunnel is s**t and its almost same as if you dont have it at all. NEVER EVER disable IPv6 protocol, since we are in year 2010 and not in 2000, however you can disable teredo tunnel and install own ipv6 solution. Teredo is imo totaly useless.

    Utorrent uses it, however I can max out my speeds easy enough on a puter without it. (2+ meg up and can get 20+ down, but my spouse complains about not being to go anywhere if I don't limit my speeds)

    Never Ever? Why not if the native intergrated is crap?

    Ehh... forget of using ipv6 for "speeds" or something even more silly crap. You use IPv6 atm for extra layer of compatibility and because simply in about a year IPv4 address space WILL run out eventualy we will all need to start using ipv6 and/or dual stack solutions.

    because IPv6 local-link ipv6 addresses are used in different services in local network. For example for file sharing and similar, but like i said protocol it self is usefull by it self, but teredo tunnel is so unreliable that is almost same as you dont have it.

    Also one more thing, if you are asking if ipv6 is needed right now, answer is no. In dual stack network i only have about few 100MB of ipv6 traffic/day (out of 20GB+) and also 99% of that ipv6 traffic could use ipv4, but since i have both ipv4 & ipv6 it gets prefered over ipv6 protocol. Atm ipv6 is more something to learn about so you are ready in the feature.

    Nuff said. I have no acess on mine. Think I'll remove windows 7 default and attempt other options.

    I have uninstalled it and I have no problems. I see no reason to have it on a single computer. I can cruise the internet without any problems.

    I believe you need ipv6 for home groups.

    There's no point in removing it at this point in time.
    While ipv6 was a very distant possibility back in the XP days, it's going to become a mandatory reality pretty soon.
    ipv4 space is running out, so ipv6 is basically in the process of being phased in (very softly) right now.
