  • Hi,

     

    The Internet/Site Automatic Tunnel Addressing Protocol (ISATAP) connects IPv6 hosts/routers over IPv4 networks. ISATAP views the IPv4 network as a link layer for IPv6 and views other nodes on the network as potential IPv6 hosts/routers. ISATAP supports automatic tunneling and a tunnel interface management abstraction similar to the Non-Broadcast, Multiple Access (NBMA) and ATM Permanent/Switched Virtual Circuit (PVC/SVC) models.

     

    If you do not use a IPv6 network, it should not affect your connection.

     

    For more information about ISATAP, you can refer to the following Microsoft articles:

    Regarding the connection issue, I suggest you reinstall your network adapter driver and check the settings again to test this issue.

     

    Hope it helps.
