    Code:
    IPng supports addresses which are four times the number of bits as IPv4 addresses (128 vs. 32). This is 4 Billion times 4 Billion times 4 Billion (2^^96) times the size of the IPv4 address space (2^^32). This works out to be:
    340,282,366,920,938,463,463,374,607,431,768,211,456

    wow, running IPv6 and IPv4 together for 20 years to work out the bugs.

    So how will that affect us, when will be see the extra 2 octets show up in the ip addy and will it be random or will everyone just start out at 1.1.255.255.255.255?

    i'm guessing IPv6 is going to tread all IPv4's like they have something generic for the first two octets like you show.. 1's or 0's i would say
