Many sites blocked when on Orbi but not on other router

When connected to the Orbi, many normal websites are unnaccesible. I get a dialog box saying the connection is not private and It asks me for a username and passoword 

 

On top of that I cannot streem movies on my Apple TV

 

Please help!  How can I solve this?

What else is on your network. Your subject says "other router". Is that on the same network as the Orbi?

It might also help if you told people what the modem is in front of this router. The model number could be useful. Is it, by any chance, also a router, with a set of LAN ports on the back?

The reason for asking is that a lot of people turn up here trying to put a router behind a modem that is also a router.

Having two routers on a network can cause headaches. For example, you can end up with local address problems. Among other things, the other router can misdirect addresses that the Netgear router usually handles, such as routerlogin.net or the usual IP address for a router, 192.168.1.1.

This explains some of the other drawbacks.
