ipv6 thing is a network thing .. linux just support it .. we use tunneling because all networks are not IPV6 enabled so a ipv6 address is tunneled into a ipv4 address and so on and on ...
i asked u some things to do ... were u able to ping ur dns's ipv6 address ?
and route command is issued as root .. login as root
and issue simply
it will give u some output .. please paste it ..
were u able to ping the static ip
please paste the output of all commands
#ping fec0:0:0:ffff::1 (i never tried this .. but as u have ipv6 it might help)
i will not be able to help u .. if u dont paste the output .. coz i wudnt know the error .. u said that there is some transfering going on .. but again ur confusing me .. because previously u were using eth1 as interface for internet and now u talked abt eth0
[root@mybox sysconfig]# ifconfig
eth1 Link encap:Ethernet HWaddr 00:50:8D

But when I went to click, connect eth0, it wouldn't connect! also i'm not able to ping a static ip.
please be consistent ... also if u have some extra time .. please explain me .. how do u connect to internet .. wot command do u use .. coz i havent worked on that kinda network ... is it adsl .. do u use something like adsl-connect ?
all the best ...
