      Instructions to turn off UPnP

      I don't know if someone has posted instructions already but here is a one page PDF file I wrote for a friend giving instructions on how to turn off UPnP for the Sky router:

      http://www.skyuser.co.uk/tools/HowTo...rSkyRouter.pdf

      If anyone can host the file at a better site, it would be appreciated.

      Thanks

      Had a few minutes and since I'm here asking for help I thought it would be good karma to do this for you:

      Re: Instructions to turn off UPnP

      some people have had disconnection problems that turning off upnp seems to have resolved.
      others, myself included, have had no problems whatsoever with it turned on.
      its one of those strange problems that effects some and not others.
      if you do decide to turn it off and use programs such as utorrent you will have to give your pc a static address behind the router - this seems to be one of the features that upnp handles automatically.
      cheers

      Re: Instructions to turn off UPnP

      Need a bit of guidance/advice.

      Had some intermittent problems with the wireless connection failing on some occasions a simple reset cured on other nothing I could do would sort it. sky 'Help' desk told me this week that they would send a new router then I had a phone call yesterday advising that they felt it was not the router after all and I should check out the UPnP settings on the router - they could not advise on this as it is outside the remit of their support. Suggested I Google it and follow the links!

      Right that is the story.

      Having now read most if not all of the posts on this excellent forum it would appear I should turn it off, no problems in doing that but I have picked up a concern that when one uses Skype as I do it, it can fail so I am a tad concerned.

      The question is do I risk it or do I connect my computer via an Ethernet cable and forget about the wireless connection (I know the Ethernet cable works as my daughters PC is connected using that technology and is working fine).

      Any thoughts, suggestions clean or other wise, on second thoughts clean only please!
