My Internet is very slow. I ran the troubleshooter, and I got the message "Contact your system administrator to enable 6to4 functionality."

 

But I can't figure out how to do that. I've tried googling it, but the results are just a bunch of techno-babble jibberish that I can't understand.

 

Case in point: https://www.ivonetworks.com/news/2012/08/enabling-or-disabling-the-directaccess-adapters-for-testing-6to4-teredo-ip-https/

 

This link suggests using some mesh statements. But it really assumes that the reader A, knows what a mesh statement even is, and B, knows how to enter a mesh statement in the first place!

 

Can somebody just tell me how to enable the blasted 6to4 functionality for christ's sake?!

That doesn't help me any better than the others ones I've seen.

 

 

You can try to update your Network adapter and your chipset to see if that resolves the issue, please look on the hardware provider’s website for updates for your components.

How can I tell who the manufacturer of my network adapter is?

 

 

Uninstall and reinstall this component.

Uninstall what component?

 

For god's sake, just tell me what to click and where!
