My laptop has two network adapters, one is wireless and connected wirelessly to a wireless router, another one is wired and connected to a network supported IPv6 with cable. The question is , can I assign different network request to different network adapter? For instance, assign IPv4 request to wireless adapter and assign IPv6 request to wired adapter? Or is there a software can handle this? Any help is appreciated! FYI, the OS in this topic is either Windows 7 or Mac OS X.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.
When you go into the network adaptor properties in Windows 7 you can tick and untick the protocols that you wish to use with that adaptor, so just untick IPv6 on one of them and untick IPv4 on the other.
On a Mac, you can go into Network Preferences, click an interface on the left and then click on Advanced and then TCP/IP. You can then selectively enable both IPv4 and IPv6 on the interface that you have selected.
