Vista to Win7 upgrade no IPv6

I just upgraded my system from Vista to win 7 32bit now when i open the Local Area Connection box i notice that the IPv6 connectivity says no internet access. When i had vista installed it ran both the IPv4 and IPv6 , Is this normal ? 

Only i would have thought that upgrading to a newer system it would have been the same. I can still connect to the internet OK and i wouldn't notice any difference if i hadn't of checked. Its just bugging me

I am not 100% certain, but I suspect that what you're referring to is the setting on your network connection that provides(ed) for IPv6 DHCP - which would relate to an internal network running IPv6 rather than your internet connection.
