IPv6 on LG TV

How to Turn On or Off IPv6 on LG TV

IPv6 is a network protocol through which we can communicate over the network. As IPv6 is more advanced than IPv4, you can enable it on your LG TV to support multicast addresses with high security and to make routing productive. It can boost the internet speed on LG TV so you don’t have to use Network Address Translation (NAT) which might slow down the connection. If you worry about online privacy, it is recommended to use IPv6 instead of IPv4.

Should IPv6 be ON or OFF on LG TV

IPv6 (128-bit IP address) is the recent version of Internet Protocol which consists alphanumeric address that has 8 fields that are separated by colons. IPv6 has benefits like advanced network layer security, auto-configuration capabilities, larger address space, etc. So, enabling it on your LG Smart TV is a better option.

Benefits of IPv6

Improved Efficient Routing: IPv6 makes routing more efficient by minimizing the size of routing tables.

Improved Packet Processing: Compared to IPv4, IPv6 has no IP-level checksum. So there is no need for checksum to re-evaluate at each router hop.

Easy Network Configuration: IPv6 has built-in auto-configuration. So it can automatically configure, including the IP address assignment and device numbering when connected to any IPv6 device.

High Security: IPSec offers confidentiality, authentication, and data integrity in IPv6.

Directed Data Flows: Rather than broadcast, IPv6 supports multicast. Because of this, IPv6 can permit bandwidth-intensive packet flows to different destinations concurrently by saving the network bandwidth.
