In Local area connection property there are IPV6 enabled.

Disable that.

It will be stop. RUN purely on IPV4.

Your answer is not clear for me !

What I have to stop ?

My problem is that when You install a PC with windows Vista on a IPV4 LAN ,this Pc is sending more than 2000 IPv6 packets/sec over the LAN (ICMPv6 Multicast listener Report Message V2).

How can I stop this ???

What can I configured on the cisco router to stop this ??
