    Hello. I am having issues with my RT-N66R with latest firmware 3.0.0.4.380_3264 blocking certain websites; I don't have any issues when my Macbook Pro is connected directly to the cable modem via ethernet cable. I have been having this issue for several months but it's just really gotten to me and I am determined to fix it. The websites I like to visit that are blocked when using my Asus router either via Wifi or ethernet include www.monoprice.com and macys.com among others. I don't have any specific websites blocked in the router settings and am wondering what it could be? Pretty much all the settings in the router are default as I am not a techie. I can access many other websites just wondering why my Asus router won't let me connect to certain websites like monoprice and macys? When trying to access monoprice Any help or ideas are greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Problem Solved - I went into my router's interface - WAN section and clicked on MAC CLONE in the MAC ADDRESS section and then hit apply and boom now I can access those websites

    Wow , after two days of having the same problem, and searching everywhere for a solution , that worked for me too! on my RT-AC87U. I could not access some of my websites while connected to my wireless router , it only worked if i had connected the cable directly from cable modem to my pc!.
    Thanks for pointing that out, all works now.
