starting with kernel 2.6.28-4 ipv6 is built in and cannot be disabled . this causes very sloow internet access for people who have routers or isp's that are non compliant . Prior to 2.6.28-4 ipv6 was loaded as a module and could be disabled by setting " alias net-pf-10 ipv6 off " in /etc/modprobe.d/aliases and also adding blacklist ipv6 to /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist . please provide a method of disabling IPV6 for those who need it .
