REally strange:

I cannot ping through my network while disabling IPv6, but as soon as I enable IPv6 I can ping through my network lab...any ideas?

For example,

My server ip address is 10.1.1.100

Two clients are 10.1.1.101
and

10.1.1.102

But like I mentioned, when IPv6 is disabled, I can't ping.

I assume IPv6 is disabled for the above screenshot? If so, how did you disable it? (Registry, Adapter properties?)

It appears that somewhere in your network, someone has an ISATAP router configured. That could be interfering with the ping when it is enabled.

Recommendations:

1. Get rid of ISATAP unless you are testing it. Make sure that the name isatap is not registered in DNS.
2. If this doesn't work, follow the instructions at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929852 and set DisabledComponents to 0x01 (This disables all tunnel interfaces)

One of these two should fix your issue. Let me know how it goes - I'll be back online tomorrow.

I disabled it through Adapter properties, but I don't think that it's based on whether or not I hav e a ISATAP router because I also tested this on a LIVE environment, and the same thing occured.

IPv4 can ping just fine without IPv6 on Win 7, so something is interfering with the ping. Do me a favor and re-enable IPv6 on the Adapter properties, set the disabledcomponents key as I described above, and try adding the -4 switch to the ping command, so it looks like

ping -4 10.1.1.100

and send in the full copy/past of the results.

We'll get you working.
