Does anyone know why?

IPV6 does not have 'Properties' on my XP computer.  And my ISP does not support it so I can't use it to connect to anything.  It may be that your ISP doesn't either.  Most don't at this time.  I think I saw a report that only 10% of the Internet is IPV6 capable at this time.

Do you have an IPv6 supporting DHCP server (router that is IPv6 compliant)?

What is it you want to do/end up with?

There is nothing to configure in XP IPv6. It only supports autoconfiguration.

If you want to see you configuration, type "ipconfig" at a cmd prompt.

The IPv6 addresses that begin with fe80:: will only work on your local LAN

My ISP doesn't support IPv6 so I have 6to4 running on my router which advertises the 2002 address range to my LAN.

If you want a proper IPv6 stack you should upgrade to at the very least Windows Vista.
Also XP operates only as a client so for example you can't remote desktop to an XP computer with IPv6.
