How Do I Enable Upnp on My Arris Router Model TG1682G

Hello Folks, I recently bought an Arris router TG1682G for my house. When I sat down to configure my new router with my iiNet modem connection, there was an issue. I was using the internet to help me setup this machine and it said something about UPnP configuration which I was unable to find or configure. Can anyone here tell me from where to change the settings of UPnP?
