Had an issue when I installed BOINC 7.6.22 w/ VM. Somewhere in the installation, perhaps the install of the VM, it changed a network preference and enabled IPv6. As my ISP does not yet support IPv6, this results in Windows telling everyone that the machine is not connected to the internet. However IPv4 is still available. Browsers are happy and you would not know there was an issue except for a tray notification. BUT BOINC apparently does not fall back on IPv4 as I found a huge number of tasks that were not uploading stuck in the queue with messages that BOINC could not connect.

Not sure this is a bug per say or something that simply should be documented.
