Default URL shown is IPv6 address, instead of IPv4
« on: April 19, 2016, 08:58:02 PM »

My DIR-880L is connected to ISP only with IPv4 addressing only.  I'd like to know why if I access it thru file explorer of Windows, it directs me to its IPv6 address to its WebUI.  Is there a way to direct to its IPv4 address?  What would be the recommended Internet and Network setting?  My unit acts as a PPPOE dialer thru the bridged ADSL modem.

Is IPv6 enabled and configured?  ??? Try disabling IPv6.

Confirmed during disabled and as expected, it works.   But my local area network is only configured for IPv4
so I'm wondering how the IPv6 address was retrieved.  Where did the DNS/DHCP assigned IP address come?
