    It's a ipv6 ip address. ipv6 will eventualy replace ipv4 which is the ip address you are used to seeing. Ipv6 will give us many more ip addresses. As we are pritty much out of ipv4 address' s.

    It is unlikely that you are using IPv6 at the moment so you should just ignore it - in fact you can disable IPv6 for now - unless you know that you are one of the few who currently need it.

    I am not sure I would disable it. It say's "link local" might be the router is working ipv6. And disabling it could cause problems.

    "It say's "link local" might be the router is working ipv6." - it will be an autofiguration address.
