    • Slight off-topic, but I hope you would like to know that the same issue also occurs with physical machines and physical adapters.

    • I can confirm that Microsoft Edge doesn’t connect to internet if ipv6 is disabled in win10 1809.
      All other browser like Iexplorer, chrome, vivaldi etc. work with ipv6
      And that is the same on a physical machine.
      If I enable ipv6 Microsoft edge connect to internet again.
      If I disable ipv6 Microsoft Edge doesn’t connect to internet.
      A restored Edge en clear all settings, before I found this comment.

    • Hi Darren!

      After playing around with this issue, I was unable to replicate it. I have disabled IPv6 in a Hyper-V VM and on my main system and I am not having issues connecting to the internet. I am using Microsoft Edge 44.17763.1.0 Microsoft EdgeHTML 18.17763. 

      Are you still experiencing this issue on the most recent version of Edge?



    • At this time I will close out this issue. If you are still able to reproduce this issue then please provide the details I requested and I will resume investigating this issue.
