    Hello board!

    Please HELP ME UNDERSTAND THIS!

    This is the first time I post here, so here is the short story:



    Yesterday I have spent about 2 hours on the phone with various comcast call center workers, asking them to help me sort it through, but and I don't think the tech support properly addressed my concerns.

    Attached please see the screenshots of dos cmd and gmail / ip log details.

    I have blocked portions of IP addresses for privacy reasons, but if you look at the images you can see the ODD, VERY LONG IP address (looks like ipv6? ip ?) that shows both on gmail log details and on DOS screen under ipconfig results.

    I am not very good at computers, but certainly something doesn't look right. I never had 28 alpha-numerical string appear as IP address on IP log page of my Gmail account.
    Also, facebook had blocked my access to my own page, stating it couldn't recognize the device I was logging from. I always used to have 10 digit IP address, in 4 blocks of 2 to 3 numbers per block ( ex. xxx.xx.xxx.xx )
    Never had such a long string of alpha-numeric characters appear on IP logs or under ipconfig results on DOS.
    What this could be? Is there a technical malfunction?

    Comcast told me everything was normal, they just turned off the ipv6 from Network menu , but I am not convinced that this is how it should be.

    Can anyone help me get an insight, to understand what (if anything) went wrong? ? ? ? ?
