help with router settings for "back to my mac"

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
have cisco 4200 router dual band simultaneous both 2.4 and 5.0 set up

macbook c2d lion 10.7.2 on the 2.4 network

trying to set up back to my mac with iCloud
get error message

"back to my mac may be slow because NAT Port mapping (NAT-PMP) or universal plug and play
(UPnP) is turned off on your router"
"Turn on NAT-PMP or UNnP"


but under administration tab
UPnP is "enabled"

is there a way to test "back to my mac)

any help appreciated
thanks

I am not familiar with that particular router (or back to my Mac ), but according to Cisco/Linksys support pages, some new firmware was released in September that fixes some issues on the 4200, UPnP is mentioned...

Make sure you are running the latest firmware on the Router and try again.
