Thanks for your help. I looked at the log files in /var/log but could not find the actual Failed message I recieved during bootup. Oh well. Anyway, I turned of the IPv6 tables as you suggested. After rebooting I received no error and my internet connectivity seems fine. So everything seems ok.
Just out of interest, what exactly do the IPv6 tables do? From what I gather they are connected with the Firewall. I'm not making my computer unsecure by turning this off I'm I?
Again, thank you for your time and help.
