Unhappy I have net connection but none to debian repositry

I have Net connection OK but when I do an "apt-get update" I get error messages (Could not create a socket for 2001:7a8:1:5::14 (f=10 t=1 p=6) - socket (97 Address family not supported by protocol) [IP: 2001:7a8:1:5::14 21])
and it fails to connect and times out. I tried this on Ubuntu and mepis;the result is the same on each.
All the trouble started when they installed a different router at work(Netcomm ADSL2+ Modem Router) and the only way to get an Internet connection was to choose DHCP instead of static IP address(Windows as well).
I've checked the DNS server address, appears to be OK. Have spent hours and hours on this. Any clues?

Contents of /etc/apt/sources.list

You should post your /etc/apt/sources.list

Backup your sources.list and change everything to and see what that does.
