PCs using UPnP can retrieve the Gateway's WAN IP address, and automatically create NAT port maps. This means that applications that support UPnP, and are used with UPnP enabled Gateway, will not need application layer gateway support on the Gateway to work through NAT. This is an ideal setup if the applications or services require UPnP. By default UPnP is enabled in the TG862 Gateway. This document describes how to enable UPnP.
To Enable UPnP
Launch a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Safari. Enter http://192.168.0.1 into the address box, and press the Enter key. The Login page appears.
NOTE: By default the LAN IP address is 192.168.0.1. If the default address has been changed, enter the custom address in the address box.
On the Login page:
a. Enter admin in the Username field.
b. Enter password in the Password field.
c. Click the Login button. The System Basic Setup page appears.
On the top-menu, click on LAN Setup. The LAN Settings page appears.
