IPV6 Element Not Found

When adding a static IPV6 address to you device by using the command.

 

 Netsh interface ipv6 add address "Local Area Connetion" 2001:db8:1:1::10

You get a reply of Element not found.( see image).
ipv6 element not found

This is becasue the interface name, in this case “Local Area Connection” is not correct. To find the correct interface name issue the following command.

netsh int ipv6 sh int

This will list all your interfaces.
netsh int ipv6

Now note dfow the correct interface you would like to use and issue the

 Netsh interface ipv6 add address "Local Area Connetion" 2001:db8:1:1::10

command with the correct name.
