    first, make sure you go to your windows control panel and firewall, turn off the windows firewall and try it again. If you still can;t get in then using the netgear client software which came with your router you can possibly change the settings to allow it to get website easier. The security properties of your router are what it is designed for and they are working against you.

You have to contact the system admin to remove Facebook from the list of blocked websites. If this is your router, check out this users manual for a complete step-by-step tutorial on how to solve your problem. Good luck! :)

Well, the issue is the router. Who owns the router? If it is yours, you need to call netgear for router setting assistance. if it is a company router, speak to the administrator, and stay off facebook while at work or School!

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.

Every time i try to get to my facebook account it says Web Site Blocked by NETGEAR Firewall


Usually this refers to the netgear network router that is used where you are trying to connect to facebook. Whomever owns the network equipment is likely blocking facebook. If you are the one who owns the equipment I would recommend logging into the web interface of the Netgear router, going into the Block Site option on the left hand side (see pic below) and unblock the reference to Facebook.
The web interface, by default, is http://192.168.1.1 and is protected my a username (admin) and password which you would have set when you first configured the device. If you don't know the password you will need to reset the router using the instructions provided by netgear on their website (http://www.netgear.com) under support.
I hope this helps!

I just like to be able to check my facebook account. computer has antivirus or some then comes up as block content filter


Netgear's block brings up a red screen IIRC and you know that it has been blocked. If you own the router, log into it and fix it, if it's someone else's router, tough luck.

It's unlikely that an antivirus program would block facebook.

Dad blocked facebook with firewall netgear and parent control hel


It is time for you to turn negotiator. Sounds to me like your Dad would like you to spend some quality time doing something else. If you can get your father to compromise on how much time you can spend on the computer each day or to agree to do some other items(chores perhaps?) then perhaps he will let you do facebook for 30 minutes or an hour each day. Your dad sounds like a guy with some computer skills. Some routers will allow a program or website to be blocked for certain hours. He could set the time frame that you could get onto facebook in case you forgot the time. lots of possibilities there but the key is communication with Dad.

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!
