1 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
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:


"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:

UPnP Defined

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

Something about cookies .i cant get into my hotmail

Why not just do a System Restore to a point (date and time) before you started turning stuff off? I'm not sure which operating system you have but in windows Xp and Vista you get to system restore by clicking Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore... Once it is up you can select a date and time for which to restore, they are called Restore Points.

Don't worry, System Restore does not cause you to lose any data, documents, music, pictures or videos. You could lose a Program that was installed after the restore point.

On the other hand, System Recovery LOSE EVERYTHING. It sets your system back to the point of when you first purchased it.

My kensington optical2.0 wireless mouse will not work on my toshiba sattelite 300 series vista home premium after downloading driver

please follow the follwing steps:

1. remove the device from the computer.

2.remove unkown devices from the compter. follow steps.
a) select the compter icon on the desktop and right click and select manage.
b) select device manager.
c) look for heading usb devices or unkown devices. if there are unkown devices in your compter that selection tree would be open. just select select the unkown devices and click delete. confirm the same.

3) post deleting all unkown devices, reboot your laptop.
now keep the driver disk handy which came along with the mouse or the driver you have downloaded., preferablly install the driver if its an executable file before connecting the device, other wise save the file to your desktop and ensure the driver is not in a zip or a rar archive, please extract the same.

4) connect the device, the compter would search the driver, failing to find the driver compter would ask for the options. select that you have the disk under advanced option. select the driver you have download and it would show you the device and please continue the installation with the same driver.

You are done... your device would work then.
