Router question

I hope there isnt another question about this, but my girlfriend has DSL with a Netgear MR814 router and the Linksys wireless-B card. My question is, how come the computer wont let us "log in" to certain things, it wont let me log in to my yahoo mail, or let us post a bid on ebay, it seems to take forever to get to the next page, but only when we try to log into a site. What can i do to make this faster. thanks.

are you sure it is the router?
maybe you have cookies disabled or the configuration of IE is wrong.

It seems to have an issue with logging. And that can be from your firewall. Does she have Windows XP SP2 or a firewall you can find? Try the toolbar on the bottom of the page. If you find one and can get into its setting there may be a page where you have to allow access to certain sites. Or as stated above to allow cookies. For checking the settings goto Tools at the top of Internet Explorer and than security if it is there. Inside there you may have to allow access. If it is not under Security try another tab to see what she has the computer set for.

Try a MTU setting of 1492 in your router setup.
