      Overhaul of net addresses begins to IP

      The first big steps on the road to overhauling the net's core addressing system have been taken.
      On Monday the master address books for the net are being updated to include records prepared in a new format known as IP version 6.

      Widespread use of this format will end the shortage of addresses that sites can be given.

      The net's current addressing scheme is expected to exhaust the pool of unallocated addresses by 2011.

      For a long while, he said, the effects on consumers would be minimal though eventually home routers may have to be upgraded or swapped so they can use the longer addresses
