UPnP Feature of Linksys Routers:

Universal Plug and Play enables your router to get configured automatically on different operating systems. It is mainly used for online videoconference and gaming apps. Here in this article, you will learn how to enable Universal Plug n Play feature on your Linksys router.

How to Enable and Disable the UPnP?

Step 1: The first thing that you need to do is to access the web-based setup page of your router.

Step 2: Go to the internet-based setup page and select Administration.

Step 3: After that, choose the desired UPnP setting.

Note: UPnP is enabled by default on your router.  In case you are facing connection issues even when the UPnP is enabled, then you are required to check other network settings like wireless security. You can also check out the gaming and application section.

To resolve the problem, you may have to connect your device to the modem directly in order to see whether it is working or not. If you find that it is functioning or working, then get in touch with the manufacturer of your device to check if any ports need to be forwarded to the router.  

  • Universal Plug and Play: If you want to use UPnP, then let it remain enabled. Or else, choose to be disabled.
  • Enable Users to Configure: The option enables a user to change the settings of the router manually by selecting the UPnP features. Choose enabled to forbid any or all internet connections. Or else you can choose to keep the default setting disabled.
  • Enable Users to Disable Access to the Internet: Using this option, you can easily prohibit connections. Select enabled if you wish to prohibit internet connection or else keep the default setting disabled.  

Note: If you want to play games online, then you need to enable UPnP Feature of Linksys Routers.
