You can get a more detailed scan on this site, it tells you what version UPnP/OS your router has (needs Java)
Here is why I am not affected

This device appears to run "POSIX UPnP/1.0 linux/".

A device that is affected shows this

This device appears to run "Linux/, UPnP/1.0, Portable SDK for UPnP devices/1.6.6". This system may be vulnerable to CVE-2012-5958 and CVE-2012-5959

Portable SDK for UPnP Devices has been updated to resolve this issue
