Re: [Connectivity] Strange redirection

Just to rule out..have you done a hard reset of the router?
Does it occur on other sites..or just that one/ just http or https as well?

How about an encoded mac?

Edit: WOT is none too pleased with that site, so I've hashed it so people don't unwittingly click on it
Also my a/v went off with bells & whistles. If you'd truly like to rule out, just for peace of mind - I'd run thru the steps here:

»Security Cleanup FAQ »Mandatory Steps Before Requesting Assistance

..it's easy, just copy/paste the following into your post (in order):

the contents of the MBAM log (Step 2)
the contents of OTL.txt (Step 3)
the contents of Extras.txt (Step 3)
the contents of checkup.txt (Step 4)
the contents of the ESET Online AntiVirus Scan log (Step 5)

..and start a thread in that forum: »Security Cleanup

We see redirected search results often, so better safe than sorry.

Also looks like it redirects (albeit briefly) to inq.com / »www.aboutus.org/Inq.com#redirectory-

Re: [Connectivity] Strange redirection

Of course the router was rebooted. Several times in fact.

It appears to only happen with http, not https. Thus far limited to that one site.

Encoded modem mac: b7a545ab886180d51275148a594e2fc37481b416

Given that this issue is not localized to a pc or several pc's, but occurs on my phone (android based). I would think the issue is somewhere else in the chain.

Changing DNS back to 4.2.2.2 (level3.net) no longer redirects.

Only after I change back to the rcn dns, does this redirection occur. In between the tests, dns cache is being cleared and browser restarted.

Definitely something to look at then.

Thanks for adding the additional info.

^^Good find! I only discovered this last night. So looks like it's not quite an rcn issue

..but..but...troubleshooting and head-banging is so much...fun

Good grief. Hope they clear things up soon or there's going to be a ton of confuddled folks out there
