    I'm trying to find a way to block yahoo IM in my router but even after I found all the ports it uses it will go to port 80 if the others are blocked. I really would like to block this but not web browsing. Any way to do that? My router is a netgear WNR2000. These are the ports I blocked already 5050, 5150,5101,5001,1638.
    I don't have access to the pc running it so going on there to do anything is out of the picture.

    Since this isn't a software related issue, you may want to ask a moderator to move this to the networking forum because you are asking to do this on your router. Click on the report button.
