comment What Percentage of people have UPnP Enabled at current times?
@ed fries, once again, thanks for your input, what you say does make a lot of sense. just in case you were wondering, i once had a personal SOHO router typically named a "netgear firewall router" which is just a router that shares internet with software-based firewall sitting on the actual router configurable via settings (i understand the word 'firewall' here is probably more a marketing bang-word than anything else).

comment What Percentage of people have UPnP Enabled at current times?
@jason berg - when i looked for an appropriate place to ask it, i found serverfault (hint: router ~= server) admin config stuff. if SF doesn't allow this question, how am i to know which forum would? i still fail to understand why its not allowed here, it seemed to me like a legit serverfault question. perhaps a better reason could be provided next time.

@ed fries - thank you for yoru detailed and lovely description, this certainly adds to my understanding of the influences around the question on UPnP proportions. I noticed that you said consumer routers ship probably 'enabled' and SOHO firewalls ship with upnp disabled, by "SOHO firewalls" did you mean SOHO firewall routers or just SOHO firewalls (if they even exist)? What would your guess be on the enabled/disabled status of a typical SOHO firewalled router that shares internet connectivity?

that doesn't answer any of the above questions, but thats for your opinion. however, some business desicions are dependant on it and you need to realize that its based on the software and there is nothing illegitimate about that (such as a user frienldy router settings surfer and editor)

@Jason Berg - there is nothing wrong with the question that i've asked, feel free to ban me, i'll just create another account & re-ask my question for the benefit of others and myself, as there is a need to have this question answered & ur just being unnecesarily difficult abusing your new found points fame/rep - get over it. Once again, the reasons for closing my thread is 100% incorrect, the things stated (in next comment) are not true, the question is a clear and simple question easy to answer, yet you closed my thread claiming it is not as per your reasoning that follows...

thanks for the info, but this just shows the details for my local/client wireless 802.11n wifi card on my computer, this doesn't list or show the actual router, which would be the linksys, i checked through the enumeration.
