X Redirecting to Myspace - Continued

So it seems we have narrowed down the problem...

Cisco Linksys Router, specifically the WRT-160N model. It appears there is a bug in this routers recursive DNS implementation in firmware and Linksys refused to acknowledge this.

Solution (this appears to fix it):
Configure your local computer to use DNS servers INSTEAD of getting them through DHCP (when the router gives your computer networking information).

Google and OpenDNS both provide Public DNS servers.

Good luck! Let me know in the comments if you are having this problem with other routers.
