    I have a brand new Vista Ultimate running Dell desktop. Today when I was checking my Device manager, I found that there are several listings named “6to4 adapter”. If am not wrong, it should be just one, right? So I left one and deleted rest of all. After 5 minutes when I checked back, it was listed again with multiple instances.

    Do you have any idea what is wrong? Why there are so many instances of 6to4 adapter? Thanks for all suggestions.

    It sounds very strange. I’m a hardware guy but have never seen a single PC or laptop with multiple adapter instances ever. Can you just do one thing, can you take a screenshot of device manager showing those instances and send us the link after uploading the same on any image hosting sites like imageshack? It will help us understand the problem properly.

    Re: multiple instances of 6to4 adapter in device manager

    Well I’ll post the image later because somebody suggested me to disabled IPv6 support through the following registry key : HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip6\Parameters DisabledComponents=dword:00000011. I did the same and also deleted all 6TO4 adapter entries in device manager. Now when I check Device manager, I have the following under Adapter Section:

    Intel(R) 82562V-2 10/100 Network Connection
    WAN Miniport (SSTP)
    WAN Miniport (IP)
    WAN Miniport (IPv6)
    WAN Miniport (L2TP)
    WAN Miniport (Network Monitor)
    WAN Miniport (PPPOE)
    WAN Miniport (PPTP)

    But it remains until my IPv6 is kept disabled. If I enable it, I keep getting 6 to 7 instances of 6TO4 adapter. Any help?
