I know this is not that kind of support website but on the other side I found my problem very fascinating so I'll post it anyway.
Yesterday all of my machines disconnected from my home network. It took a while until they could reconnect again. Then everything went back to normal, besides that one of my machines (Windows 7) wouldn't allow me to connect to the Internet. I can access all of my email accounts (imap).
I can access google.com but in most cases the authorization window of my browser pops up and asks for login. It says:
Repeater Login: admin / PW: 1234
When I quit this dialog the browser will return
When I try to connect to an
https://<website>, there is a warning about a corrupt certificate that is only valid for 127.0.0.1 (on Windows and Ubuntu).
There has been no modification to the network by us, and the FritzBox we are using is not acting as a repeater. We don't use repeaters at all.
This is what I tried to fix the problem: - I changed the OS to Ubuntu and I faced the same problem. - I flushed my DNS, added 126.96.36.199... same issues. - I updated my router firmware.
After I switched the usb dongle, everything went back to normal. I thought the dongle was simply broken. Today I came home and guess what.. the same thing is happening again and this time it is not only the same machine as before but also my smartphone.
I did some tracepath. Here's the output on my corrupt machine:
foo@foo-MS-7758:~$ tracepath golem.de 1?: [LOCALHOST] pmtu 1500 1: brw002258164b03.setup 4.380ms reached 1: brw002258164b03.setup 15.272ms reached Resume: pmtu 1500 hops 1 back 1
Output on the working machine:

Do you have any idea what could cause this and how I can fix it? How could I gather more information to get to the ground of this?
EDIT: DNS is working correctly btw. I can ping any URL and it will give me the correct IP but no answers.
EDIT2: brw002258164b03 is the network name of my brother wireless printer. The Fritzbox seems to route the traffic to the wrong devices or whatever. Also tracepath won't alays return brw002258164b03 but also some microsoft server names etc.
This still doesn't explain why I can access google and golem.de but no other websites (tracepath also returned the brother printers network name when I traced golem.de or google.de).
I removed my computer from the list of network devices and then I connected with a static IP address. I'm excited how this will work out.
