I connected a wireless access point (Belkin ) to the N900 router. I have two PCs - one running Windows 7 and the other Windows 8.
With the Windows 7 PC, I have no issues - I can connect the Windows 7 PC to either the WD router’s 2.4 GHz wireless signal or to the Belkin access point’s 2.4 GHz wireless signal and can browse any website.
But when the Windows 8 PC is connected to the WD router’s signal, if I attempt to browse a secure website (e.g. HTTPS:// www.facebook.com or HTTPS:// www.google.com), the website fails to load. The browser times out and nothing is displayed. I can browse non-secure websites (HTTP://…) without any issues, but not secure (HTTPS://…) websites. If the Windows 8 PC is instead connected to the Belkin access point’s wireless signal, then I am able to browse secure (HTTPS) and non-secure (HTTP) websites. I believe that rules out any issues with the PC browser settings.
I have three browsers - Internet Explorer, Fire Fox, and Chrome. I have this problem with all three browsers.
I have tried various changes the router’s settings, but with no luck. I have removed the access point from the network - still no luck.
Any other suggestions?
