Internet Gateway Device Support

Updated: January 7, 2009

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

BITS can query home routers (Internet Gateway Devices [IGDs]) that support Universal Plug and Play (UPnP) counters and determine how much bandwidth is being used, rather than rely on only the link between the computer and the IGD. This feature is most useful for home users that have several computers connected behind a Network Address Translation (NAT) router.
