If your computer system is connected to the IPv6 to access the internet, then you have made your internet access future-proof. But even modern devices can still fail sometimes. And just like the old IPv4, the IPv6 can get no network access on Windows 10.
The IPv6 protocol has been around for decades. While it is considered the next generation of internet access, IPv4 is not about to go away anytime soon. In fact, the majority of computers around the world are still reliant on IPv6. Add to the fact that internet service providers or ISPs still support IPv4.
So if you belong to the few that uses the IPv6 connection, you would be having a slight difficulty when your connection is suddenly lost. There is not much support for IPv6 issues yet. But few still mean that there are some. So this article is where the few stands out. If you are an IPv6 or your computer system uses an IPv6 connection, this article is your solution. We will fix the IPv6 no network access on your Windows 10.
Since we are talking about a solution for Windows 10, the approach would be a lot easier. You see Windows 10 has created some shortcuts to previous Windows services that are usually some commands away. Let’s start.
Sometimes the problem is just as simple as an outdated network driver or a faulty one. It could be that a recent automatic update failed or that some of your recent operations damaged the network driver entirely. If this is the case, here is what you should do.
Sometimes it is the simple things that make the issue and conflict. So we will also try this method just in case the previous methods don’t work.
IPv6 and IPv4 are similar in terms of giving you internet access. The difference is that the IPv6 is much bigger and broader with its number of IP addresses. Plus it is much more stable and more reliable. It just so happen that it has not caught up yet. One biggest reason is that the majority of devices and ISP included still relies on IPv4.
So fixing IPv6 should be similar to how you fix IPv4. Just to make sure that the issue is not as difficult as we assume, go to Ethernet Properties and make sure that the IPv6 checkbox is ticked. It would be such a waste if the problem was just it all along. In case you do not know how to see the Ethernet Properties, press Windows key + R and hit Enter key. On the Run window, type NCPA.CPL and press Enter key again. On the Network Connections window, double-click your network adapter to launch the Ethernet Status. Below that is the Ethernet Properties. Click on it and then scroll down to see if IPv6 has a ticked checkbox.
