Question about HP Pavilion dv6000z Notebook
Dont know if this site also handels stuff like this but all i need to know is what a Upnp device is cause trying to download something and it keeps saying it cant find this?
UPnP = Universal Plug-N-Play
The UPnP architecture77 allows
peer-to-peer78 networking of PCs79,
networked appliances80, and wireless81 devices.
It is a distributed, open architecture based on established standards such as TCP/IP82, UDP83, HTTP84 and XML85.
Basically if you are trying to download something and it's having a problem with UPnP, you might be able to solve that by going into your Routers menu
It's usually something like 192.168.0.1
typed into the address bar of IE or FireFox, etc.
You would be best finding your Router/Modem's Documentation to access it's menu if you don't know how.
But as I said, you can usually access it like above, the default user name is ADMIN
Password is either left blank or is "password" (w/o quotes)
If you want to look up your router/wireless Internet modem
Use this link and look up your model
(It's about forwarding ports, but you just follow the directions on how to access your models menu)
I have a link for you to a tool that will scan for your UPnP capable devices and give you information
It will also give you a better idea about UPnP:
FREE UPnP TESTER LINK
"UPnP Tester is an experimental tool which lists all the available devices compatible with the Universal Plug-and-Play protocol including Internet Gateway Devices (IGDs). As soon as the program starts, it searches for available devices then it updates the list as devices are plugged or unplugged. The status window displays miscellaneous notifications and the IP addresses as they are assigned."
I think between these two things you will be able to activate UPnP or see what devices have the option and if it is active or not
Finally, if you want to read the whole long explanation of what UPnP is 'technically; here:
But for your purposes, I think you can just cut to the chase with the two options above.
Whew, I think I need to rest my typing fingers ;-)
Good Luck & write me if you need
