Need help with IPv6

Need help with IPv6

Need help with IPv6

I just got a new HP laptop that supports ipv6, but the moment I connected to the wireless network in my house with my new laptop nobody could use the internet. When my laptop is off, the internet works fine on all the computers. Before I connected to the wireless on my laptop, when I was just plugged into the LAN through the router, everything worked fine as well. So I feel like I've narrowed the problem down to being on the wireless with my laptop, and none of the other computers in the house have ipv6 addresses, they all have ipv4 addresses so I thought that might be effecting it as well. Any ideas or suggestions you may have would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much!

RE: Need help with IPv6

update... it doesn't work when I'm just plugged into the LAN either. It only works when you open up a webpage the first time, then it won't work after unless you turn the routers power off and then on again. Then even after this it only works to open the home webpage.
