Was trying to connect to the sprint.com site tonight and experienced some rather strange redirection.
Let me preface by saying that I experienced the same redirection when using my cell phone with the wifi connection.
No changes have been made to the router in many months (possibly years). Same redirection was experienced on a brand new machine with fresh windows install, so it's not localized to one particular pc.
Going to sprint.com would redirect to hxxp://pagesinxt.com/?dn=sprint.inq.com&fp=IE%2Fh3rltb6QD%2FtQIVOnMXajALbqN%2FtZe%2F87XFC49bN1ey6DWudTgx9lr%2BbY%2B184QBIQH7V68SwdnOAypnNQXRg%3D%3D&prvtof=MBt0FgIbx0ZbL%2BGaQQf5lNWfDIWonEBdurMm0Q2Wd2xqW6tUUONegzQFWhKu35WzO%2B%2BrFP%2Bdq8TfRveErMPr%2Fv5lgtfHPQ5Y2LDOysHzfDc%3D&poru=iNzHdrx4lNy9Jm0ZI21DGhhqGLC5klXYhAs2ab2oYsRHg%2B1Pj0fb3SWlv%2BuP%2Fa3bk5UhCY3QWHsku7Mgnb9d1LNXmtIBMU8ibvdZIDYGBVs%3D&cifr=1&flrdr=yes&nxte=js
Obtaining different public ip addresses does not seem to fix the problem. I highly doubt my router has been compromised. Changing to different dns (220.127.116.11 for example) does not fix this.
Can some folks try going to sprint.com while on the rcn network and see what your results are. Going to sprint.com while on a non rcn network seems to work just fine.
EDIT: I tried some other public dns such as google (18.104.22.168). After clearing the dns cache and deleting history/cookies, this seems to have fixed it.
However, if I reconfig with the rcn dns, then the issue returns..
When I go to www.sprint.com I automaticaly get transfered to Inq.com. What is going on with Sprint?
