Last Updated: October 7, 2021

IPv6 or Internet Protocol Version 6 was designed to take the place of IPv4. However, it comes with existing IP options for customizing your VPN. Therefore, disabling IPv6 might be a good first step toward a solid setup with better speed. To effectively disable IPv6 on macOS, follow the instructions below.

  1. Start by clicking on Apple Logo.
  2. Now click on System Preferences, then go to Network.
  3. Select the first Network listed on the left-hand side (usually Ethernet or Wi-Fi).
  4. Then click the Advanced
  5. Go to the TCP/IP tab at the top of the screen.
  6. Besides, Set IPv6 to Off in the configuration.
  7. Select Link-local Only if you don’t have this option.
  8. To save your changes, click OK. If you connect to a different network type (Wi-Fi, for example), repeat the same steps.
  9. Once you are done with the steps, you’ve successfully disabled IPv6 on your Windows computer.
