Universal Plug and Play UPnP is a bad idea. If you get malware they can own your network. Open the ports that you want open and only those ports and protocols, block everything else. The first line in your firewall chain on you router should be:
BLOCK ALL INCOMING
BLOCK ALL OUTGOING.
What ever way that is set up according to your router.
Then slowly open things up, starting with DNS, then HTTP, HTTPS, then whatever other ports and protocols you need. This will take more time but it will give you more control.
NAT Network Address Translation. This should be OK to turn on.
UPnP No, NAT OK.
Those are my thoughts on it. I'm not an expert. Open only what you need and don't let your software on your OS control your router at will, set it up yourself.
