UPnP-Enabled Router NTK

With Windows XP well into deployment and more manufacturers starting to beat the drum on how wonderful life is with a UPnP enabled router, I thought I'd see whether UPnP is something that you just won't want to live without in your Internet sharing device. If you don't know what UPnP is, or even if you do, you may want to read our UPnP FAQ before diving into this NTK, since the basics and background of UPnP are covered there. Also, if you're the impatient type and just want the bottom line on what I found, you can get it here.

Fast Network Adapters - What's Holding You Back?

One of the "lessons learned" from our testing of higher speed (>10Mbps) network adapters is that you don't always get what you think you're getting, i.e. higher network speed.
