MSN,NAT,UPNP problems?

Question

sharpy2k4    10

Ok,my setup is this

Cable Modem->Belkin F5D7230uk4 (Firmware F5D7230v4_UK_6.00.14)->2 pcs via Belking Dongle + 1 via Laptop Wireless.

Anyway, on the router i have the firewall off, as each computer has XP's firewall,ad aware,registry mechanic,and either AVG,Avast, or Bullguards.

ok, so msn connects but says "You are connected to the Internet through a UPnP port restriceted NAT(administrator)".

Ok, so i went into my router and both NAT and UPNP are enabled.

And MSN is on the exceptions list within the firewall that XP Pro SP 2 has.

I'm on the internet fine and stuff, its just weird, cause transfers over msn dont go fast, or sometimes they randomly stop. I am logged on as the admin on this computer anyway, well, crated a Admin account at setup, but know the safemode admin password.

But can anyone help me with this problem please :)

Also:my router wont actually update its firmware, i download the firmware which it says should be in a certain format, but i download from the link and its in .bin format and wont actually install :angry:

Hmmmmm, are you using any third party firewall? If so turn that off aswell and see if your problem is solved.

And i'd know if there was a 3rd party firewall as i only just formatted the other day, hmmm
