I have a windows home server. When I browse from the net any web site in it I get an authentication window with the next message: " site requires user name and password, the site says: "SmartAX". Then when I close the window I get an error page saying:

Protected object

this object on the rompager server is protected

Could you please help on this, have it relation with ADSL router ?

Yes, some routers might redirect you to their admin interface page when there're problems with the internet connection. Make sure that your internet connection is up. To check if your connection is up try to ping any address e.g. start->cmd->ping

Yesterday I could browse the default website and got the correct IIS default web page using the same router, and currently I succeeded to ping as you advised to verify connection, I have rebooted the router to see if any cached data, the result is that the issue is still persisting. – Sami-L Nov 3 '12 at 21:57
Can you browse other pages without a problem? – FINESEC Nov 3 '12 at 22:00
No, since this is the first thing that appears. – Sami-L Nov 3 '12 at 22:28
Press escape key and type other url, e.g. – FINESEC Nov 3 '12 at 22:46
Escape key removes the window and send to google web site without problem. – Sami-L Nov 3 '12 at 23:14
