2wire router blocking port 80 443 HTTP HTTPS website traffic

I have come across this case a couple of times where for some reason after operating successfully for some days or weeks all port 80 traffic starts getting blocked by a 2wire router.

This occurs when the router is connected to the computers through a switch, as opposed to all computers connecting directly to the router.

In order to resolve it open the router management diagnostic console (MDC) by going to the router address /mdc

wire-managment

Under Local Network go to Configure

network

Check OFF Enable Router behind Router alert

network
