I am not able to load the yahoo sites (yahoomail, yahoo,yahoo answers etc) and few other sites(eg Microsoft.com). Please refer to my earlier post : http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/networking/threads/409045/cannot-access-yahoo-sites I had a Beetel 450TC1 router, which finaly gave up yesterday, so I used the modem that my ISP provided, a wire-only router (AN1020-20) and these sites were working. So I got a new router - TP-LINK, TLWR740N, and the issue is back. 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 can still access the sites through the wired router(AN1020-20) on the desktop and laptop, and can access the sites on the handheld devices through 3G. I have done all the troubleshooting I could think off.... - 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. - Turned off firewall, no success. - Turned off the UPnP, no success.
Check the routers for the newest firmware just to cover any software bugs.
Turn off all Intrustion Detection systems on the router (if any). Turn off all firewall features on the router (if Any) Remove any blocked keywords if your router has that feature (remember block the word 'sex' and www.marsexplorer.com will also be blocked.
Just found that there was a Diagnostic Section in the Router's page, which allows to ping and traceroute. I pinged www.yahoo.com,and the result is pasted below : Pinging www.yahoo.com [184.108.40.206] with 64 bytes of data:

I am really clueless at this point,i can successfully ping the sites but cannot browse them... serious help needed!!!
What is your current OS that you are running on the computer?
Have you tired accessing the sites using hexidecimal or binary this can sometimes identify some ossue with the name resolutions and can also help you see if it your router that is locking them for any reason?
I was interested in the answer to this problem also. I have to do frequent work on different types of routers. Friends, family, aquaintances, etc. Including my own network modem/router on which I have 4 pc's. Two wired and two wireless. I thought finding and joining this site was a great move forward for learning, sharing, solving pc tech problems. But it seems some do not like to share.
