To disable IPv6, please follow the instructions below:
There are 2 ways to disable IPv6 on your network. You can do so by deactivating IPv6 on your router, which will automatically apply the change to your entire network, or you can disable IPv6 on individual devices.
Below we will walk you through disabling IPv6 on macOS.

Then click TCP/IP. Click on the Configure IPv6 pop-up menu and set it to Off and click OK.
Now that IPv6 has been disabled on your computer, please restart your computer as well as router.
Note: If you don't have the option to turn off IPv6, please run a command through the Terminal application. To open Terminal, please follow the steps below:
