That's a reasonable guess, vulcannz, but modern browsers load both v4 and v6 versions of a website simultaneously, and display the one which connects first. This is explicitly to prevent broken v6 from breaking the web.

 

 

 

I'm not saying OP shouldn't try it, but it's fairly unlikely.

 

 

That's the theory... in practice the Windows IPv6 stack is pretty shonky, between the OS and browsers things can go very wrong.

Is there a reason this was happening? How important is IPv6? Just trying to find out why it happened and if I can find a permanent fix?

IPv6 is a "nice to have", but not having it right now will not affect you in any way (ie turning it off will not cause any problems and as you have experienced may fix some issues). It may even be desirable to turn it off from a security point of view.

I have one PC out of four here (Dell Optiplex 780) that won't load Google pages if IPV6 is enabled on its network device. 

 

No idea why, though.Just happen to be on Orcon as well, but probably just a coincidence?
