IPv6 should I turn this setting on in my router, as my X-box one is asking for it?

Hi, I just noticed that my X-box one is saying in its network settings that I should be using IPv6 instead of IPv4. I'm using a Hub 3 in modem mode with a Netgear  R7800 router. In the router menus IPv6 was turned off. Should I turn it on? I'm not sure if VM support IPv6 yet?

Thanks for the reply.  I tried turning the IPv6 to on in the router settings, and my X-box one is now reporting that I'm using both IPv4 &IPv6.  instead of just IPv4 like it was before. But if VM don't use IPv6 yet I'm not really sure whats going on then.

possible it might be tunnelling ipv6 inside the ipv4

Yes that's the setting it has set itself to, as it was on auto detect (6to4 tunnel)  should I leave it on this setting or just disable IPv6  again please?

I was also having a unrelated problem with The Nat type going strict randomly. Will test this setting to see if it helps or not with the Nat type issue. Thanks for the replys
