Improve Network Connections With Universal Plug and
Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) helps devices such as Internet appliances and computers access the
network and connect to other devices as needed. UPnP devices can automatically discover the services
from other registered UPnP devices on the network.
If you use applications such as multiplayer gaming, peer-to-peer connections, or real-time communications
such as instant messaging or remote assistance (a feature in Windows XP), enable UPnP.
To enable Universal Plug and Play:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or mobile device that is connected to the network.
2. Enter http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the router user name and password.

5. Select the Turn UPnP On check box.
By default, this check box is selected. UPnP for automatic device configuration can be enabled or
disabled. If the Turn UPnP On check box is cleared, the router does not allow any device to automatically
control router resources, such as port forwarding.
6. Type the advertisement period in minutes.
The advertisement period specifies how often the router broadcasts its UPnP information. This value
can range from 1 to 1440 minutes. The default period is 30 minutes. Shorter durations ensure that
control points receive current device status at the expense of more network traffic. Longer durations
can compromise the freshness of the device status but can significantly reduce network traffic.
7. Type the advertisement time to live in hops.
The time to live for the advertisement is measured in hops (steps) for each UPnP packet sent. Hops
are the steps a packet takes between routers.The number of hops can range from 1 to 255.The default
value for the advertisement time to live is 4 hops, which should be fine for most home networks. If you
