Disable IPv6

It has been found that some campus and personal devices will not communicate with the network correctly if IPv6 is enabled on the device. It is okay to disable IPv6 on devices connecting to the S&T network as our network only uses IPv4.

  1. Open Network Settings.

    Open Network Settings

  2. Click Change Adapter Settings under Related Settings

    Change Adapter Settings

  3. Select the adapter that is having issues. In most cases, they are labelled ‘Wi-Fi’ or ‘Ethernet’. Some older operating systems label them as ‘Local Area Connection’, so you may need to look at the icon to determine the connection type. When you have located the correct adapter, right-click the adapter and select Properties.

  4. Uncheck Internet Protocol Version 6 (TCP/IPv6) and click Close
