To disable IPv6 on your computer, follow the guides below. To jump to Windows, click here.
1. Go to System Preferences.
Note: Depending on the version of OSX, this may be able to be turned off just set to Local-Link only.
Windows: There are two options for disabling IPv6 in Windows. The first is to disable IPv6 completely and the second is to disable it on your current network device. It is preferable to disable it via method 2; however, method 1 is easier to accomplish.
