This obviously will change a lot for corporations, because supports comes standard on Server 08... But what's Joe Schmoe, with his two towers and three laptops, supposed to do in order to get his wife and 2.5 kids set up to take advantage of the new protocols?

Is there an IPv6 prep guide out there yet that BC recommends?

Hello DnDer,

You can activate V.6 by opening control panel and then opening network connections. Select the adapter that you are using and right click on it to select properties. You should then be able to click install then protocol then version 6.
Regards,

Alan.

That's it? No new routers or modems? No new wireless card to install in the tower? I never thought implementing new technology could be so easy.

I know what you mean, I've had it set on my system for ages, I'm not sure if I missed something, but that should allow for V.6 functionality.
Regards,

Alan.
