WNDR4500 blocking Facebook

This just started earlier tonight. If I plug directly into the cable modem, all sites work. If I plug into the router (or wirelessly) Facebook can not be accessed.

I was also having a hard time getting to Google.com, so I changed the router setting from receiving the DNS settings from my internet provider to Google's free DNS addresses. Now Google comes up in a flash, but still no Facebook.

Just wondered if anyone had seen or heard of anything like this at all?

Thanks,
Will

Re: WNDR4500 blocking Facebook

In the router WAN settings you should see the option to ‘Use Computer MAC Address’, using the computer that can access Facebook via the modem directly, configure this option. Then reboot the router and modem so that the modem detects the change to the router’s MAC address.
