UPnP broken in Netgear RAX80 on firmware


UPnP broken in Netgear RAX80 on firmware

I'm trying to forward some ports for my application, but unfortunately UPnP isn't working on all my devices connected to the Netgear RAX80 router.

I mainly use p2p application and seem to get this as my port status:

Port Blocked.png



The same thing is happening on my mobile, where the app says that the portforwarding isn't active.


I think the UPnp is a bit slow to update, and doen't trigget port forwarding request immediately.


At one point it did show my computer with port needed to be forward, but it was still showing blocked on the app.


Kindly fix this issue, or else I'll have to look for older firmware or worse return the router for good.


If you have an older working firmware for port forwarding, do let me know.
