What is IPv6?



IPv6 is the latest version of the main communications method that identifies and locates computers and other devices on the internet. It provides more efficient packet handling, improving performance and security. Yet despite this, the rest of the internet is taking its sweet time to transition from IPv4. Here’s what’s at stake.

    I'm not able to access internet when I turn on IPV6 on my router, I'm using the google IPV6 address, can somebody guide me if I should just continue to use IPV4 or look for another address for IPV6? I'm located in Malaysia, not sure why I can't access IPV6.

    NAT, private address space, etc will keep IPv4 running for many many more years to come.

    Thanks for the video, useful information. Was wondering what this stuff was when looking at my W10 Inet configuration.

    Only thing that left me a bit puzzled was at 1:30. For saying it’s 128-bits, the IPv6 address seems extremely structured going by that example, are all 128-bits actually possible…? Also weird not to show actual hexadecimals in a number that’s purported to allow them.
