I am using Asus RT N16 wireless router connected to a PPPoE modem. When I web page is requested and there is no internet connection, the page gets automatically redirected to


or their internet connection configuration page. This is a big issue if I open a browser with a saved session and there is no internet connection. All my pages redirect to the above page. Is it possible to disable this feature?

You're being redirected to a very spammy domain there, which isn't even owned by Asus. Something really funny is going on at your local network. –  Michael Hampton Oct 20 '12 at 14:12
WHen there is no internet asusnetwork.net is like routerlogin.net for NetGear. It shows the router configuration page. When it is connected to internet, it shows a parked domain. –  Joyce Babu Oct 22 '12 at 5:33
Wow, remind me never to use the vendor-provided firmware on an ASUS router, then. –  Michael Hampton Oct 22 '12 at 13:20
My initial plan was to load Tomato firmware. But I'm afraid I will brick the router. –  Joyce Babu Oct 22 '12 at 18:47
