At the moment i am using an old Netgear DG834G modem/router which i've never upgraded the software (don't know how), and until now has been working alright. But now i keep losing the Internet connection and when i typed in "ipconfig" was surprised to find IPv6. Could this be the reason why i keep losing my Internet connection? And would a new router compliant with IPv6 resolve the issue of losing my internet connection? Thanks

The IPv6 actually can be disabled for home network users with or without wireless connection problems. You can try unticking it from the wireless adapter - Properties - (TCP/IPv6) to check on the difference.
