Hello hope someone can answer my question and I thank you in advance. I'm on windows 7 64bit and when I check my ipconfig I notice I have 4 different IPv6 addresses. Two of the addresses just say IPv6 while another shows temporary IPv6 address and the other shows link local IPv6 address. I'm just curious if this is normal or not. I also notice it on my iPhone which shows 3 ipv6 addresses along with one fe address. I use Comcast by the way. I also have a phone line if that makes a difference.

I had to edit this because i reread it and it comes off as just two ip addresses and that's not the case.

Yes, it is normal and part of the protocol. I don't know what's the deal with the iPhone, though.

I wouldn't be concerned about about it either.
