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.

Just download and the below software and run it in your pc. No need install it. Once you run it, one explorer window will open automatically. By using this you can browse any site withour any issue.
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.
