    Could you first specify which netgear router you are running so I can provide you with a rundown of steps?

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.....

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!
