UPnP: The device "Linksys WRT160Nv2" is not a Upnp Router


Recommended Posts


I am getting this message in my log and my port isn't getting mapped. I can open ports manually which work but I like to use random ports opened with UPnP. I was wondering if this is a known issue or if anyone else is experiencing it.

UPnp is active on the router, according to the UI anyway.

These are the logs I am getting:

[2009-03-09 16:19:53] UPnP: Could not map UPnP Port on this pass, retrying.

[2009-03-09 16:19:56] UPnP: Discovered host:

[2009-03-09 16:19:56] UPnP: The device "Linksys WRT160Nv2" is not a UPnP router (

[2009-03-09 16:19:56] UPnP: Device error "": (-2)

The details page it is looking at looks like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <root xmlns="urn:schemas-upnp-org:device-1-0">

- <specVersion>




- <device>


<friendlyName>Linksys WRT160Nv2</friendlyName>

<manufacturer>Linksys Inc.</manufacturer>


<modelDescription>Internet Access Server</modelDescription>






- <serviceList>

- <service>











I'm not sure if Linksys have messed anything up in the description.xml?

This is a fairly new revision of this router as there are no firmware updates currently. So they may have screwed something up which gets fixed later.

Previous Netgear routers and a homebrew Linux router running the linux-igd worked fine with UpNP and uTorrent

Any thoughts on the issue would be gratefully received.
