Windows, Linux, and other operating systems all have built-in support for IPv6, and it’s enabled by default. According to a myth going around, this IPv6 support is slowing down your connection and disabling it will speed things up.
Are we correct in saying that there is a relevant typo error in the 4th paragraph beginning "So, the myth goes....."? "Disable IPv4" should read "Disable IPv6"
This is not totally true. Case in point: the Linksys X2000 router. The latest firmware update so horrendously implemented ipv6, that I had to rollback the firmware. Now pages, once again, load lickity split.
It is not true in some situations, the manufacturers should test them in a real-world test
