AC2600 Youtube Adobe Flash being blocked

The router seems to be blocking Youtube website and Adobe flash content.  Thought it was the laptop but other old laptop had the same issue.  Checked updates on laptop and connected directly to modem and it works fine but when connect to the route, it blocks.  When I run a speed test on cell app, I get 0 download.  Is that where the problem is?  Otherwise, every other web traffic seems fine.  I did a ping test (ping www.yahoo.com -f -l 1472) and checked MTU is 1500, so that didn't seem to be an issue that the chat person thought.

Did you try to change the DNS server on your devices?

Looks like it was the ISP IP addresses that were the issue. I changed and then put it back to dynamic and then it worked.  Not really sure what was wrong but now I get Youtube and adobe flash player working.

Looks like it is happening again.  Youtube is being blocked by the router. Anyone know why this might be happening?  The IP Addresses are dynamic.  I switched like I did the last time to static back to dynamic, reset the router a couple of times and still Youtube is being blocked and adobe flash player isn't working on a Facebook game like before.
