Of course, the above becomes moot, after I disable IPV6.

I have three other devices on my router, a Desktop, a Laptop and a Printer.
How will disabling IPv6 on the router affect them?
A printer should live. Assuming that's a good printer, not that modern
kids' toy that comes to Internet just for the heck of it.

A desktop and a laptop should not notice it. It depends on their OS of
course, but as long as you don't need to connect to them from outside
world via IPv6 - nobody will change for them.
What about just disabling IPv6 on the platform that's having the problem?
How can I do that?
echo net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1 >> /etc/sysctl.conf

Also, just out of curiosity I installed Stretch in a VirtualBox on this
computer and it isn't having any problems with IPv6.
That's … unexpected. But, assuming you're using VirtualBox NAT -
But if you're using VirtualBox's bridged connection - what would be

The other Desktop is an older 32 bit computer that used to run WindowsXP on
which I installed the 32 bit version of Stretch  It isn't having any
problems, other than those that can be ascribed to a tired platform way past
it's prime.
Care to share IPv6 routing table from this another host?


Sorry it took me a while to get it, but:

root@Igor:~# netstat -nr -f inet6
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags   MSS Window  irtt Iface         UG        0 0          0 enp0s12   U         0 0          0 enp0s12

One, hopefully final, question.  In case I mess up, how do I enable IPv6?
