CR1000A is missing Plug-and-Play Option
mantis2023
Enthusiast - Level 1

I noticed that although the documentation for the CR1000A says that in the Network section of the router (under Advanced), there is a Universal Plug and Play option to click,  my relatively new CR1000A router does not have this option.

Not sure this is relevant, but I did manually create a port forwarding rule, but it's not currently enabled. Other than that, this router is factory default.

Does anyone know how to get the plug and play option to appear in the list under Network?

Thanks

UPnP is not secure and should be avoided if not outright disabled.

There is a Port Forwarding page and a Port Forwarding Rules page, they are different things and, if you mix them up, the configuration won't work.
