For those that will rather use command line. Here are the steps to disable Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6) with PowerShell:

  • Type PowerShell in the search bar. Then right-click it and select Run as administrator.
  • At PowerShell command prompt, type this command. Then press enter.
Get-NetAdapterBinding -ComponentID ms_tcpip6

Here is the result in PowerShell. This command confirms that IPv6 is enabled (See Enabled column, it is True).

Note the Name of the adapter you wish to disable IPv6 on. In this example, mine is Ethernet.

  • To disable IPv6 in Windows 10 type this PowerSehell command. Then press enter.
Disable-NetAdapterBinding -Name "Ethernet" -ComponentID ms_tcpip6

Change “Ethernet” to the name of your network adapter card.

  • To confirm that it is disabled, run the previous command.
Get-NetAdapterBinding -ComponentID ms_tcpip6 

See the result below – Enabled now displays False.

Disable IPv6 in Windows 10 with Netsh Command

You can also use the netsh command line to disable IPv6. Here are the steps:

  • Type Command prompt in the search bar. Then right-click it and select Run as administrator.
  • At command prompt, to disable IPv6 from all interfaces, type these commands. Then press enter – one command at a time.
netsh interface teredo set state disabled
netsh interface ipv6 6to4 set state state=disabled undoonstop=disabled
netsh interface ipv6 isatap set state state=disabled
