I recently got on a new website (www.blocksavvy.com) and there are certain things I cannot do on this site. I was told it could be my firewall blocking. I have updated adobe flash player, allowed the cookies for this page, cleared the cache and cleared the cookies and I still can't get full functionality out of this website. Is there any way to get full access to this page when I have a firewall provided by my wireless router? It's driving me nuts! This is a laptop I'm using now but I assume with the desktop that I'll have the same issues because they are both connected to the same router. I am not the administrator of this computer but I can't imagine that this is the issue. Please help!!

I don't expect that it's the router (the pages work fine for me), but you can test it by connecting directly to your modem (which removes the modem from the equation).

You can also try installing another browser (such as the free Firefox browser available here: http://www.mozilla.com/ ) to see if it's a setting in the browser that's causing this.

What other security/protection/tweaking software are you using? It's possible that a setting in one of the programs is blocking content from the site.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

What functions are you missing?

If you are not the Administrator you may not be able to install the tools necessary to view the page properly. Also as John (USASMA) has mentioned, your computer may have filtering software that stops certain urls, and plugins. The certainly holds true for work and school computers.

Is this a work or school computer?

No its a home computer. And the only firewall that I have is the one that is w/in the router. How can I tell if there are other programs that may be blocking content on the site? I've never had this issue before.

Try clearing your Resolver Cache. Go to Start, then Run. Type cmd in the run box. When the command line window opens type in ipconfig /FlushDNS and press Enter.
