The "Network Discovery" setting is in the "Change advanced sharing settings" in "Network and Sharing Center". Access it from Control Panel or from the Network icon bottom right of the taskbar.

This utility: "DisableUPNP.exe" available from is designed to turn UPNP off for those of us who don't need it, however you can also turn UPNP on using the utility. I just checked it out on my system.
