I know this sounds crazy, but thats what happens. For some domains like *.gstatic.com, the domain resolves to a proper IP address, but it seems the only thing responding when trying to access that IP is my router . So, on a google web page, which references a domain, like *.gstatic.com, my browser asks for my router password. (because IT actually connects to the router instead of the resolved IP)
Some further tests (ip redacted):
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>ping __.__.41.255 Pinging __.__.41.255 with 32 bytes of data: Reply from __.__.41.255: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=32 Reply from __.__.41.255: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=32 Reply from __.__.41.255: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=32 Reply from __.__.41.255: bytes=32 time<1ms TTL=32 Ping statistics for __.__.41.255: Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss), Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds: Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms C:\Documents and Settings\Owner>tracert __.__.41.255 Tracing route to [__.__.41.255] over a maximum of 30 hops: 1 <1 ms <1 ms <1 ms [__.__.41.255] Trace complete.

This happens all over my network, so even on my linux machines. Also, its not something caused by the hosts file and I haven't set any special routing rules on my router.
The router is a Konig cmp-router10, firmware: R03-027.
Is this a bug in my router? Have you experienced anything like this before?
