    Before my spring break, my connection worked beautifully with little to no issues in my college dorm room. When I took my Xbox X back home for spring break it worked there to with little to no issues in connection. When I came back to my dorm though, there was no connection to the internet through my ethernet. It is stating I have IPv4 which I have found that I need IPv6. I have tried all the methods that were presented on previous questions regarding changing from IPv4 to IPv6, but I am stopped when needing to change the IP settings because it only shows the option of IPv4. I have restarted, cleaned my MAC address, changed my ethernet cable yet nothing works.

    How to switch to IPv6

    Hey there!

    Nice to meet you! I'm Darhyl, a fellow gamer. I'm sorry you are experiencing this. I am here to help.

    If I may ask, may I know which platform device are we referring to here, is it on Windows PC or Xbox console?

    If it's on console, to switch from IPv4 to IPv6 on Xbox Series X, you can follow these steps:

    On your Xbox Series X, go to Settings.

    Select Network.

    Select Advanced Settings.

    Select IP settings.

    Change the "IPv6" setting from "Automatic" to "Manual."

    Enter your IPv6 address, subnet prefix length, and default gateway information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).

    Save your changes.

    Note that not all ISPs support IPv6, so you may need to contact your ISP to confirm if they do and obtain the necessary information to set it up on your Xbox Series X.

    Thank you for your time. I hope you have a great day!

    How do I go about getting ipv6 instead of ipv4 for my internet connection. (going off memory might not be ipv4)

    The IPv6 is enabled on my router thru my isp. But it still doesn't come up on my series x. I also cannot disable the IPv4 for others in the house is using it.

    how do i go to ipv4 to ipv6

    Hi M B.

    My name is Mauro and I am happy to help you.

    For your Xbox console to connect to the Internet using IPv6, your home router must have IPv6 enabled and your Internet Service Provider (ISP) must support IPv6. If your ISP has already unblocked it, you need to check your router settings and make changes needed so it can switch to IPV6 To change it from the console:

    1. On the Xbox Series X console, go to Settings.
    2. Select Network.
    3. Select Advanced Settings.
    4. Select IP Settings. Change the "IPv6" setting from "Automatic" to "Manual". Enter the IPv6 address, subnet prefix length, and default gateway information provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
    5. Save your changes.

    Native IPv6 Support

    Same question here.

    I love my Xbox and the "ipv6 support".

    But the required tunneling over ipv4 via teredo is pathetic.

    I am on a native ipv6 network. To use party chat I have to leave my ipv6 network and use a virtual ipv4 address, just to use teredo to join the ipv6 network again.

    Microsoft; when is native ipv6 support planned for the Xbox one?

    Regards

    -Simon
