As far as I know, UPnP is concerned with automatically designating ports for software through the router. If your PC hardware has been disabled by DRM, I'm not sure changing the OS will work, especially as XP is now unsupported by MS. I've had to dump 3 CD recorders,4 DVD player/recorders, 3 DVD cards with digital outs, and numerous soundcards with the ability to record 'What you hear'(converting digital to analog and saving the analog to digital), all thanks to Microsofts attempts to police the Internet. All this has occured between the release of Vista and the present day. My point being is that if DRM can restrict the ability to use your hardware to record and distribute, it could just as easily restrict your router/software/network from downloading from certain sites, especially torrent sites that are believed, by Microsoft (rightly or wrongly), to host copyrighted material.

It doesn't stop you from giving it a try though!

Good luck !! :-)
