  1. Hi All,
    I am trying to setup a workgroup for my Windows 10 home computers but keep getting an error that IPv6 is connected. I have tried resetting on both computers in CMD but it tells me Resetting, failed Access is denied. I am logged on as administrator in CMD and on mycomputers. Can anyone help me rectify this problem.

    Many thanks,

    Verity25

    I think I posted this in the wrong forum, is there some way to move it to the correct one.
    Thanks,

    Login as admin (not the runas ...)
    control panel -> Network & Sharing
    left side has Change Adapter Settings
    (do this for both Lan & Wifi)
    click on the device
    click Properties
    CLEAR [ ] IPv6
    apply, go back to the other device and repeat.

    I tried that but still the same error. IPv6 needs to be connected to set up a homegroup.
