SOURCE: BEFSR81 admin problem when enabled uPNP

I actually FOUND the solution at the linksys community forum site. It's weird, and I quote [kiefmoon], "I beat my head against this issue for the past few months, for the same reason as you: I'd built out a Windows Home Server, which can configure a home router automatically via UPnP, so I happily enabled it on the router, only to be locked out of the web-based configuration page.

Good news though! I just figured out the cause of the issue -- and it's really dumb:
You turn on UPnP on the Passwords tab, right? Well, if you look around on that page, you'll notice that, along with the option to enable UPnP, there are two password fields filled with asterisks. I think most people would assume that if they don't change anything in those fields, then click Apply, that the password has not been changed. And they'd be wrong. I don't know what the password gets changed to at that point, but it's not "admin".

...So the fix is: when you enable UPnP, do yourself a favor and enter a password in those fields (ideally something sronger than "admin" ). That way, you'll actually know what the password is when you get prompted for it."

SOURCE: how do i change my nat type from strict to open

I have the same router and the info acertempest gave you should work.

However, in my case, I found it did not work. I had to go under applications and gaming, select Port Rang Forwarding and then open the following ports:

TCP 80
UDP 88
UDP 3074
TCP 3074
UDP 53
TCP 53

Once that was done, I had to configure one of the gamertags to automatically sign in to Xbox Live (as crazy as that sounds) when the console is turned on.

The best way to allow all servers to be seen is the put your XBOX onto the DMZ. The router will only allow you to put one xbox on the DMZ, look in the router settings and add the IP of your xbox. You may want to first assign a static IP to your xbox instead of an automatic one.

How do enable upnp on belkin router

Since you aren't specific about the model of Belkin router you are using, I can only give you some general advice. This is what is have from MY Belkin router manual. Yours may be different....

Enabling/Disabling UPnP
UPnP (Universal Plug-and-Play) is yet another advanced feature offered by your Belkin Router. It is a technology that offers seamless operation of voice messaging, video messaging, games, and other applications that are UPnP-compliant. Some applications require the Router's firewall to be configured in a specific way to operate properly. This usually requires opening TCP and UDP ports. An application that is UPnP-compliant has the ability to communicate with the Router, basically "telling" the Router which way it needs the firewall configured. The Router ships with the UPnP feature disabled. If you are using any applications that are UPnP-compliant, and wish to take advantage of the UPnP features, you can enable the UPnP feature. Simply select "Enable" in the "UPnP Enabling" section of the "System Settings" page. Click "Apply Changes" to save the change.

My DLink router DIR 632 Disconnects AOL AIM IM every 10mn or so, i tried changing the ports from 5190 to 443 which use to sole an issue of rapid disconnects/reconnects with a previous router...

It can be the router config... or the WIFI dongle/card, if it is the router config, turn on DMZ in your router config if it is your wifi card follow these directions: go to Start > Control panel > network connections > right click on your network connection and then click on properties > a window will open, you'll see the name of the wifi adapter you have click on the "Configure" button right next to the network adapter's name > click on the advanced options tab then through all your advanced options until you find power saving mode than change it to constantly awake mode or CAM, see if it fixes your problem. Have a nice day

Vizio xwr100 need to enable UPnP

You can get into the router's firmware by typing it's location on your network into your browser bar.
For most people, the address is usually .
From there, usually you will have to enter your login & password for the router, and then you will have the option to change it's settings. Just look around and you should see an option like "Enable UPnP?" with a checkbox or a yes/no dialog next to it. Simply check it, save your settings, and close the browser window.
Some routers you may have to power down the router and then turn it back on for the new settings to take place.

Enabling upnp

You need to access the router's setup page. The default IP address of Belkin router is Launch IE and type on the address field. It doesn't need a username/password by default. So when a windown pop up asking for one just leave the fields blank and click ok.

Once you're in the setup page, you may now be able to configure the router with the settings you need.

Hope this helps!
