    Empty the cache and disable ALL add-ons and extensions.

    Which version of Windows are you running and is your login an admin account?

    I'm curious if you have tried another browser. And if the problem is specific to only one or if you are not able to use any browser.

    That would suggest it is not a local issue, and if so there is nothing you can do to help matters.

    Actually yes and no cliffordcooley, because my husband who is ten feet away gets in with his laptop all the time no problem, either through IE or Google. Go figure...

    My fb wouldn't work on any of my browsers I went into internet options, then connections.. unclicked LAN proxy's.. now it works..I would suggest you try this if it still isn't working..

    Yeap, that works - - but you also disabled your antivirus product. This is how a great many of them filter web access for virus' and trojans. *IF* you have an AV that provides Web Filtering (eg: Avast! Free), you can disable that specific filter.

    Personally, Web and Email scanning is the #1 priority feature I look for in AV.

    Unclicking proxy settings works for me too. I often can't access the web so it is either my VPN is acting strange or is because of the proxy settings the needs to change.

    To the best of my knowledge, neither bing or msn are browsers. bing I think is a lousy search engine & msn is just a website.

    Did the OP tried to reset any internet browser's settings to default?

    looks like the (wifi) router has a filter disallowing facebook on certain local I.P. addresses used by the 'problematic' connected computers.
