Disable IPv6 And Other Unused Devices

Disable IPv6 
And Other Unused Devices.

    Disabling IPv6 might be a good idea, because the protocol consumes additional CPU time and system memory as well as bandwidth. Of course the resource usage of an internet protocol is pretty low, but why would you waste resources for 2 internet protocols, 1 is already enough.

  1. Open up the “Control Panel” and then the Network Sharing Center
  2. Click on Change adapter settings
  3. Right-click on your network adapter, usually Local Area Connection and click on Properties
  4. Uncheck Internet Protocol Version 6 and click on OK
    Secondly, It's time to disable unused and outdated network adapters in device manager. Disable all ISATAP, 6to4 and Teredo Tunneling interfaces. They will be listed in the drop down menu under network adapters.
  1. Click start
  2. Right click my computer
  3. Select properties
  4. Top left will be device manager
  5. Click the drop down menu under network adapters
  6. Locate the names above and double click each
  7. Disable all that you find
  8. Reboot and test anything you own related to an internet connection, printers, network drives.
