Netgear Router. Issues with Facebook, Youtube Etc.


This is a home user question. We used to have a Sky Router which broke. I have since changed it to a Netgear DGNV1000 which was a pain as Sky never give out the login details. The internet does work fine, but found a few issues on mobile devices.

What will happen is facebook and Youtube and it seems any other https:// site will suddenly stop working. We then have to reconnect our devices then they will work again for one refresh of facebook and one video on youtube.

Any ideas?

Try reducing the MTU on the router to something like 1460 to see if that improves.
