the short answer is Yes it is possible, BUT I would not recommend doing it since your computer will be accessible to any hacker around the world.

what kind of problem do you encounter when your computer is behind the router?

the router should not keep you from accessing those sites. Are you getting time out errors?

have you check your computers for malware, viruses, and rootkits?

It make networking easy to share Internet data. With the wireless network our data are not transfer through the cable but it transfer through the airwaves so anyone can listen in our network. To secure wireless network we have to change default password and default SSID. We also have to enable WPA Encryption and MAC address filtering as well as Disable SSID broadcast.
