I wasn't sure where to post this question... I assumed this subforum would be best...

My question is relating to broadband providers...

Let's say I have an IPV6 connection.

I want to check what my IP address is on the web...
What will it look like?

Or is it that broadband providers are all on IPV4?

Thanks.

It will look like an IPv6 address. The next two lines (for my computer's wireless connection to my router) will give you a rough idea of how to recognize whether a given IP address is v4 or v6:

Link-local IPv6 Address . . . . . : fe80::41be:4d2c:5fff:479%4
IPv4 Address . . . . . . . . . . . : 192.168.2.6

A lot depend on your ISP
For example in UK almost all BT users will routinely use a IPV6 address. whereas most Virgin media users will still be issued with an IP V4 public address.
