I just realized that I have been relying on Windows 7 (X64) to protect me from the evil world on the IPV6 side. My IP recommended F-Secure, looks like a great program.


The problem, it keeps my computer from getting IPV6 info from the router. If I uninstall F-secure and turn back on Windows firewall, all goes back to working.


Is F-secure blocking DHCPv6?


I have way more computer then I need and only play games rarely so I am not worried about overhead unless it takes me back to 80286 days.


Any help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you in advance!

    Hi Patrick533,


    Please try and change the IPv6 filtering options to "Normal" from:

    Settings -> Network connections -> Firewall -> Settings -tab -> Select IPv6 traffic filtering options
