    Sorry, I don't see a forum for WRKXXX modems. Please redirect this post if appropriate.

    I have come the conclusion that my router, WRK45G V2 with up to date firmware, is not allowing me to watch youtube videos. I don't understand why they are blocked. I can access the webpages, but the videos never load.

    I have uninstalled all firewalls and antivirus to test with no luck. The only difference comes by plugging the PC directly into the modem and bypassing the router. At this point everything works perfectly.

    In the router setup I have no blocked web addresses. I went into the "Security Settings" and unchecked ""Block Anonymous Interenet Requests", "Filter Multicast", "Filter IDENT (port 113) then became disactive. "Filter Interenet NAT direction" was already unchecked I believe, but it definitely is now anyway.

    I'm still unable to load Youtube videos. Please note I can watch streaming videos from other sites like Yahoo or ESPN as long as they do not originate from Youtube.

    Appreciate and comments and suggestions.
