Happy New Year Giuseppe and John! UPnP is a function for home users to be able to support UPnP devices behind a natted address. I have two XBoxes (one for me and my son has one), and I'm running a Cisco 871W now. The problem is that Microsoft doesn't allow you to change the ports that it runs on and it relies on three types of NAT: Strict, Moderate, or Open. Open NAT allows you to be able to chat, play online, etc, without restrictions. In order to get this to work with my XBox, I needed to forward ports to mine only, but I can't do that for two for the same port.
So, I can start a game and my son can join, but he can't join 75% of the time to others because his nat type is set to strict. UPnP solves that problem and shows both open (I tested with an old Dlink router that I had). The Dlink doesn't support QoS though, which I need. In order for me to keep the Cisco router, I'd need to buy a block of addresses from my provider, and then forward one address to each XBox. While that would solve my problem, it would be less expensive to buy a Linksys router in the long run. :-)
P.S. I HAVE to get on here more often. Work has been busy with new projects and all! Good to hear from you guys!
This is actually a pretty cool feature, i didn't even know it existed until I was looking for a solution to advertise a subnet (prefix in BGP talk), only if a certain condition existed. This is exactly what conditional advertisements does
