    Switch the Pinging from IPv6 to Ping IPv4

    Is it possible to switch from IPv6 to IPv4 ? when I ping my computer's name I get the pinging of IPv6. I would like it to show IPv4 instead like 192. for example.

    Hi VistaKing,

    You can see if unchecking IPv6 in your Network Properties will do it for you. The example in this tutorial will help show you how to if needed.
