Windows 7 Internet Hijacked - All browsers

Regardless of the browser and as far as I can figure, only in this situation:

- I am on my home Wifi
- I attempt to access a work webpage, but I've forgoton to remote into my work's server first

I get redirected to survey sites and other junk sites.

If wifi is off, it doesn't attempt to redirect. If I remote in, I don't get redirected.

Virus scan is clean.

It sounds as if your wifi router has been hijacked.
Resetting it to the factory default might help.

What is the exact make and model?
