    The IPV1, IPV2, & IPV3 would actually be part of the TCP/IP protocols. Also tcp protocol was developed 3 times.

    The IPv5 is called Internet Stream Protocol, it was an experimental protocol but it possessed some problems with speeds and bandwidth.

    You can read this book for beginners, 'TCP/IP First-Step', by Mark A Sportack

    Have you tried using IPv1, IPv2 or IPv3? What problems did you have? Those archaic methods are really not longer used and have been replaced with ipv4 for the most part and in some cases IPv6. Some ISP providers only offer ipv6 for a premium upgrade other wise you get ipv4 service.
