I am not able to load the yahoo sites (yahoomail, yahoo,yahoo answers etc) since I have started using the WI FI Router.
I have a desktop, that is connected through wire to the router, a laptop, a tablet and a few handsets that connect wirelessly to the router. None of these devices can browse the yahoo sites.
I could access the sites through the previous wired router on the desktop and laptop, and can access the sites on the handheld devices through 3G.
I have searched the net and daniweb for a solution but still nothing works.
- I have Changed the DNS to the google public dns, this loads the yahoomail page partially, but after providing the credentials, the page keeps loading.
- Changed the MTU to 1492, no success.
- Turned off the UPnP, no success.
I am using a Beetel 450TC1 router.

Please help.

You changed the DNS server address on your computer, or was it on the router? Also, did you set it to the raw IP address, or the name? Finally, what OS is your system running?

I Changed the DNS server on the computer.
I did not manually change the IP's, the router is DHCP configured.
My Laptop and Desktop are Windows 7, two Andriod devices and two Symbian devices.

I can access the yahoo sites through a proxy.

I could access the sites earlier through the wired only router,connected only to the desktop. But since I have switched to 450TC1 router, I face the issues. I was using the 450TC1 on a different network earlier and could access the sites normally there, on the same Laptop and android devices. I did a factory reset of the router and configured it to the new network, other sites like google, facebook etc load fine, only yahoo sites have this issue.

What browser do you use on the laptop and desktop? Are you trying to access Yahoo! with http, or https?

I have tried with Chrome, Opera, IE8(on desktop) and IE9(on laptop). and have used both http and https, without any success.
as mentioned I could access the sites on the same server with a different router, and same router on a different network using the same PC's. So I guess it is something to do with the current wi-fi router's configurations.

I think you are correct, given you have tried all of the rational things. One thing that comes to mind now is that the WiFi router may have some sort of parental control or other filter enabled that be blocking this connection. I know I can do that on my router if I wanted to. You may want to check the router configuration pages to see if there are any such filters or blocks enabled.

Hi rubberman,
I have checked for filters and parental controls on my Wi-Fi, and antivirus as well. But no success. when I used the google public dns(8.8.8.8), the yahoo.com page loaded partially,with only the texts and input fields on a white background, but I could not proceed any further after providing my credentials. In case of a parental control, it would pop up an appropriate message.
The handheld devices dont have any parental controls, yet these sites are not available there. but native applications such as yahoo mail for android, yahoo messenger for androids work fine.
I am really clueless at this point. Any help would be appreciated.

Sorry, but I'm clueless also! This is when I would start banging my head against the wall... :-(

In any case, SOMETHING is interfering with your connection to yahoo. You say this only happens with the wireless, and not using a wired connection to the router? Or with both?

The issue is with both the wired and wireless connection to the router.
