Hi since changing to talk talk i am unable to access several apps on my mobile via home wifi, including instagram and facebook. Having looked at previous threads this appears to be a router problem. Please may you help? Many thanks

Hi Lucy,


I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing problems with your service. Which router do you have? Do you get an error message when trying to access the apps

Thanks for your reply. It is a DLink model DSL-3782 and it will say network error if I try and use the apps. Many thanks

Oh wow! Didn't think I was but checked and turned it off and seems to be working now! Thankyou! That said, does it have to be off to make facebook and instagram work? I do have a child I would like to keep safe online - is there a way around this please? Many thanks!
