    does your network show in Network and Sharing Center, as a private or public network? It seems this portable router has three settings, 3G/4G, AP, and WISP client, so you must be in AP mode and there is no filtering set up in the router by default, it is running as an access point only. So this goes back to your security settings on the laptop, or problems in your permissions...

    The router has four modes - 3G/4G Router Mode,Wireless Router Mode,Standard AP Mode,WISP Client Router Mode and I am in 3G/4G Mode. If this has to do something with security settings on the laptop, or problems in permissions why do "some" apps and and games flawlessly?

    I would think about changing the DNS server in the routers settings. Try using Googles DNS servers at 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4

    TP link and Windows 8 simply do not work well together. It's not a Windows problem, it's a TP link router problem which has come up many times in the past. I suspect the problem will continue until TP link fixes the DNS acquisition problem with Windows 8 .

    Call your ISP and request another router.
