Since we got a PS3 my son requests that I enable uPNP on our Linksys BEFSR81 router. I enable uPNP and then save settings and after it has saved then I try to get back into administration on the router and can't. It won't take the password, whether I leave it at the default or set my own, I can't get past the login box. We can go ahead and use the router as it works fine, but I can't make any administrative changes unless I reset the router and clear it out. Help, what am I doing wrong? Ver 3 with firmware 2.51.3
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."

What is the model number of Linksys router. Connect the computer to the router and open the setup page of the router. Go to Administration tab. There you will find the option to enable UPnP on the router.
Hi, you can enable UPnP on a Linksys WRT54GS router by logging in and then clicking on the Administration tab. The first sub-tab is Management, and at the bottom of that page there are buttons to enable or disable UPnP. Click Enable and then click Save Settings at the bottom of the screen.
on WRT160N router UPnP is enabled by default. You don't need to enable it. If you want to check the settings of the router then you will need to open the set up page of the router. Router set up page is a page where you can check/change all the settings of the router. Is there any computer connected to the router. Check the Ip address of the working computer and open the router set up page. Once you open the router seyt up page, click on Administration Tab. On that page at the bottom you will see UPnP. It must enabled. Click Here for more information about router and

The following routers are the only models that support the AOL Broadband Cable service.
Note: All Linksys routers support AOL DSL connections due to the standard PPPoE login and authentication connection type used with that service.
Please be sure to check the version number of your router (which can be found on the underside label). Only the specific models and versions listed here are supported by AOL Cable:
BEFW11S4 v2, v3, and v3.2
HPRO200 (Available from AOL only at this time)
You must Enable the "AOL Parental Controls" option located in the Security tab of the web-based Setup utility pages of these routers in order to get a connection using AOL Cable. You may access the utility by visiting http://192.168.1.1 in a web browser and by logging in using the router's password (by default, the password is admin).
