Ok well Iíve had this problem since i have ad my router and itís something to do with a setting or I just donít know whatís going on. The router Iím using is a netgear rp614v3. (Itís not wireless its a wire router) It is running 2 computers and a cable connection is connected into the router. Ok now here is the problem

I have to look after the download limit so when we reach a certain % in the day I block a few websites just to stop my sisters going on websites like myspace, facebook, youtube etc cause it just chews up the download limit. When the filter is not on and nothing is blocked the router works fine no lag and doesnít drop or anything so itís all good!!
For some reason when I do go into my router and switch on the filter it works for a bit sometimes a hour or more always changers but then out of the blue it just drops or it lags and I donít know why. Are there any settings I should b changing or anything along those lines? Please help me because it just drives me insane!!

Thanks for reading and hope you and give me some feedback :)

See if there is a firmware update for the router, it usually resolves issues like these. Usually available from Netgear's website.

Ok well im back again sorry havenít replied just have been busy with school. Ok i got the newest firmware update for m router but im still having the same problem here are a list of things that happen when i "block sites" through my router

*Internet takes ages to load and sometimes doesnít connect at all, so i have to wait about 1 min and then its back

*On teamspeak all of the sudden when people speak it breaks up(its not them its something to do with my router when it blocks sites)

*also it just drops out randomly for no reason (this is kind of the same thing as the first point, and my network isnít wireless its all connected by cable)

so these all happen at different times just randomly it might be a hour into when block sites have been enabled or even 5 mins any1 else got any idea of what i should do, would it be something to do with the router firewall?, i checked my windows firewall and its all been enabled to work but it still does the same thing!

thanks for reading and hope u can help
