anything else you want to mention that wasn't in your first post?
How about telling us exactly what is happening and where you are being redirected to?

I believe I found it. Something managed to change the dns servers on my router. What ever route I chose from any computer in the house, it looked like a browser hijacker.
Instead I guess it was a DNS hijacker. When I restored the DNS servers to be assigned by my ISP, suddenly everything worked! No more hijack sites.
Now all I have to do is figure out how something managed to change the DNS on my router. Yes its password protected. No it is not accessible from external.

Then the change would come from within your lan indicating you have been hacked. This is assuming the wan router info is static not set to dhcp from the modem.

Sure hope you are not doing online banking or keeping other personal information on your home computers....
