A Layman’s Guide To The IPv6 Transition

A Layman's Guide to the IPv6 TransitionOver at the Mac Observer, John Martellaro wrote a great article titled, “A Layman’s Guide To The IPv6 Transition” where he provides a very simplified look at what IPv6 may or may not mean to home users of residential broadband services.  He covers questions such as:

  • What is TCP/IP?
  • Why is IPv4 Inadequate?
  • What Is The Industry Planning?
  • How Will the Change Affect Your Computer?
  • How Will the Change Affect Your Cable Modem?
  • How Will the Change Affect Your Home Router?
  • What About Your Other Home Devices?
  • IPv6 and Security
  • Will There be an Extra Charge for IPv6?
  • What if You do Nothing?

You may find this article a useful resource to pass along to non-technical colleagues or friends who want to know more about how IPv6 may affect their home network.
