Web Site Blocked by NETGEAR Firewall


The most common problem for your case is that the settings at the Netgear router block the web site you are trying to visit. Go at the router's settings page, locate the firewall settings and temporary disable the firewall. Check the results. In case this solve your problem, either disable the firewall or modify the existing rule that block the url that you visit. Alternative you can check the block site list at the router settings page (sometimes called parental control) and remove the url from this list.

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer. Also clarify me the model of your Netgear router and the site that you have the problem.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

I have tried to access facebook but am being blocked by netgear firewall for some reason. Can you tell me how to unblock this. Have never had this problem before


Sure. Do you own the router? If you do, log into it and click on BLOCK SITES. If facebook is listed on the list, highlight it and delete it.

If you don't have access to the router.....

None of the proxy sites work for me.


Hey,

Most of the networking sites these days are being blocked in most of the offices, colleges.
you can still access these sites using proxy software like Ultra surf

I used it myself and it works gr8. The only negative thing is that while u use this software you will not be able to access local sites on your network and can only access internet.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

How do i unblock netgear firewall


Lets say this is blocking Facebook:

the URL would be: http://www.facebook.com

and it would be blocked.

Instead, type the http part with an extra s, so that it's https://

So now it would be https://www.facebook.com

Often times this will unblock. Just the only annoying thing with this is that you'll have to keep adding "s" to the end of it every time you visit a new page, but it's better than nothing.

Hope this helps!
