Depending on the router it might handle wifi access and firewall differently.
Netgears typically perceive firewall to relate to hardwired connection's only, as the wifi access list takes care of that for all the wifi connection's but on top of that you have mac address filtering that covers all connection's. Just sayin. So it might be worth adding the phones MAC to the firewall just even if it's for temporary diagnostic purposes.
