Hello Clara,

Most routers use or
If neither of these work could you post the model of your router please? And I'll look it up for you.

It's a simple case of just opening the config page then ajusting the Netgear firewall - all pretty straight forward.

Hope this helps,

First check if any site as blocked under Block Sites. If you can't see your websites listed, then you can add your ip address as a trust ip address, under the Block Sites menu.

Clicking Attached Devices will give you a list of IP address attached to your router. Might be worth noting them.

If that doesn't work then click on Firewall Rules, and 'Add' a new rule for both 'Outbound Services' and 'Inbound Services'. Ensure to sellect 'Any(All)' under 'Services'.
