uPnP & Multiple PCs

    I have recently enabled uPnP using Thibor 15c. It works great on a single PC, unlike the Linksys firmware which I could never make work. However, when I enable it on a 2nd PC on my network, the icon shows up for the 2nd PC and it works, but stops working on the 1st PC. When I try a third PC, the uPnP starts working on that one, and quits on the 2nd. It appears that the uPnP will only work on a single PC at a time.

    I am running Shareaza and have downloaded the latest version which uses uPnP, and I would like to make uPnP work on all of my PCs on the network at the same time. Does anyone have any experience with Thibor 15c using uPnP on mutliple PCs?

    Thanks for any help.

    Each program you run on a PC uses a port... if one computer running Shareaza uses port 3000 as an example... then on the 2nd computer your run the same program and it uses the same port.. uPnP will use the 2nd computer that requested the port... try using a different port for each computer... 3000, 3001, 3002... etc

    I actually do have Shareaza configured to use a different port on each PC. My problem is that uPnP only works on one computer at a time, it being the last one turned on.

    Strange, I have both a WRT54G v1.1 and WRT54GL v1.1 both running HyperWRT/Thibor15c, and uPnP works fine on the 3 computers I have on the network. Maybe try to reflash the firmware using the 'Clear NVRAM, restore factory defaults' option before and after the flash. Don't want old settings conflicting with the new settings.
