It could be a mis-configured website, which is issuing a redirect to a private IP address which happens to be the same as the private IP address of your router.

u mean, if I ping the website, i m pinging to my router's IP ?? –  Azfar Niaz Dec 17 '09 at 17:04
    
Not necessarily. It'd be the webpage doing the redirect most likely, so a ping to the website server could actually ping the website and not your router. –  Will Eddins Dec 17 '09 at 20:40

A webserver has a concept of it's address, and it will use that address when it needs to do a redirect, so you could be entering "example.com/directory";, this is getting a redirect to "192.168.0.1/directory/";, which your router is grabbing. Just a theory... –  gorilla Dec 17 '09 at 22:49
    
i noticed that when I open the website with "www." as in "www.example.com", it redirect me to the routers page. But if id open it without "www" as in just "example.com", the website is opened? any reason ?? –  Azfar Niaz Dec 18 '09 at 14:03

It's the website. Likely on one can go there. Can you tell us the website and we could just test it? –  Will Eddins Dec 20 '09 at 16:26
