So at home my laptop and computer where getting redirected to a different website every time i click on a link on a search engine and would get pop ups for links not from search engines. So im at my aunts right now wired to their network and am not experiencing any redirects or anything. Is it something at home that might be causing redirects?

Hello trang85.

I'm assuming you're on a router at home. If so, you'll need to reset your router. This can be done by holding down the RESET button located on the router for 10-15 second with a pen or other object. Please note that after doing this you'll need to reconfigure your router, as all settings will be reset to factory default. Please consult your router documentation on how to do this as the process varies by router brand and model.

Hope that helps.

From experience, I say go with 30-45seconds. Some don't do a full reset unless its for 30+ seconds(Yes I'm talking about you Belkin).
