im on Vista Ultimate with a NETGEAR DG834G which Im sure supports UPnP , but in past when ive tried to use it its never worked and ive just ran the Microsoft Internet Conectivity Tool which reports all is OK for VISTA but UPnP isnt supported by my router???

can anyone tell me why this is happening?

EDIT: ive checked and its on...
Turn UPnP On ON
Advertisement Period (in minutes) 30

TTL of 4 hops seems pretty short, try making that something like 32.

Here's some additional info:

yeah will do thanks,

but that doesnt explain why UPnP isnt working? the Microsoft Internet Conectivity Tool says its not supported and when I ran a few p2p apps a while ago they too said UPnP wasnt supported and I had to manually open ports (which is bad as they remain open)

I currently use uTorrent and ive opened a port for that and it supports UPnP - iTHINK it may be working with uTorrent as UPnP on the router shows uTorrent as using it BUT its actually the uTorrent firewall rule thats in UPnP - so I wonder if it works by detecting the port being accessed and if the port is in my Firewall Rules then it opens the port for utorrent...??? I dunno I dont THINK so cos UPnP and Manually opening ports are 2 diff things

Well, since we don't support any P2P applications, I'm afraid I can't help you with uTorrent.
