      Re: upnp enable

      You don't really need it enabled, in fact some say that having it enabled is a security risk as it can provide a back door for malware.

      You could try enabling UPnP then boot the router immediately. Don't click apply. If that does not work try resetting the router by sticking a pin in the reset hole and hold it there until the lights start to flash. Try enabling again. You should save your settings before doing this so they can be easily reapplied.
