A friend of mine is facing a weird issue. He recently setup a Wireless router and is now unable to access HTTP sites. He is able to access sites over HTTPs.
What can be done to rectify this issue?
It sounds like the router has a setting that is blocking HTTP traffic. You say it's plug and play - this probably isn't the default. If it's easy to do try doing a factory reset. NetGear has many wireless routers, what model is it exactly? Without this information it's not possible to help more.
