Iphone 4S - Some apps won't work on wifi?

Just got a new 4S. Downloaded some of my favorite games/apps: Jurassic Park Builder, Family Feud, and a nanny cam app to watch my kids. They work perfectly when using Cellular Data.

I went to my parents house and connected to their wifi network. Safari works, the App Store works, but games that require Facebook verification (for example) don't work. My nanny cam also does not work either saying it cannot connect to my computer. I check off the Wifi button and everything works perfectly again. Switch wifi back and on poof.

Any idea whats going on?

Sounds like an issue with the wifi network rather than the phone...

Hmmm...it could be. Any idea what options I should be looking for in the router settings?
