IPV6 DEFINITION (continued): …  assumption that each network node will always have the same point of attachment to the Internet, and that each node's IP address identifies the network link where it is connected. In this routing scheme, if you disconnect a mobile device from the Internet and want to reconnect through a different network, you have to configure the device with a new IP address, and the appropriate netmask and default router. Otherwise, routing protocols have no means of delivering datagrams (packets), because the device's network address doesn't contain the necessary information about the node's network point of …
