What's going on with my girlfriend's wifi/LAN?

Recently my girlfriend switched internet providers, from Verizon to Time Warner. Since installing the new Time Warner-provided router, we've both been having problems with our phones seemingly not being able to use certain apps or services.

We both have Android phones, and she's even switched phones recently and the problem remains. Regular web access is fine, but Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, Gmail, and probably others can't be access through their respective apps. I can browse Facebook on Chrome, but the app will never update or refresh feeds. I also do not get notifications from any of these apps. I'm guessing something is stopping my phone from syncing with some Google service, among other things, but I can't figure out what it is. The router has been reset to factory settings more than once, and I've got through every option looking for something that might explain it but I can't figure it out. Has anyone else dealt with something similar?
