    I would recommend leaving in on Automatically. That's the default. I can't think of a reason to change it from that.

    The factory default, I'm pretty sure, is Automatically. That is the setting that makes sense. If ip6 is available, it will get an ip, if it is not available, no harm is done. Anything else could lead to problems.

    I agree with Jake.

    The IPv6 settings should be set to Automatic as in my screenshots below.

    The first is my Ethernet setting:

    S1.jpg

    The second is from my WiFi setting:

    S2.jpg

    These settings should have been set as the default in both cases.

    Just set them up as shown.

    If it is working leave it be!
    Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
