Can someone help me with what I think is a networking problem?

While trying to install Alpine Linux on an ethernet-only machine, the setup script fails during the wget request to get the mirrorslist (the request timed out).

I tried to do the same request on my laptop, which is connected to the same switch that the other machine is, and it also timed out. However, if I use the -4 option on my laptop to force using ipv4, the request succeeds.

Thus, it seems that ipv6 requests are being held up somehow. Where would that be happening? On my router? On the alpine server?
