Disabling IPv6 in Network Manager on Debian Wheezy

If you think that getting an dynamic IP from your ISP box is taking too much time, have a look at how Network Manager is working on your system. Maybe, it is trying to fetch an IP address within a IPv6 subnet that does not exist.

To disable this function, please proceed as follows :

– Right-click on the network status icon
– Click on “Edit Connections”
– Go to the “Wireless” tab
– Select the name of the wireless network
– Click on “Edit”
– Go to the “IPv6 Settings” tab
– In the “Method” dropdown, choose “Ignore”
– Click on “Save”

This trick works on Debian Wheezy. Trick found here
