What router are you using? Is it an amped?
Do you use strkng gibberish passwords?
Are there any wireless devices connecting to it that you don't recognise as one of yours?

In the address bar, I do not see a internal IP which says this is a webpage. DO you see this when you open up chrome first?

that sounds more like it might be a virus to me then
If I type in anything (google.com, bing.com, wikipedia.org, etc.) this page randomly shows up. This happens on all the browsers.

It could be that there is another wireless network with the same name.
Access your router web page and check the wireless network name/ssid (try changing this) , security (Should be WPA/WPA2 for better security. WEP can be cracked), change passphrase.
Use network cable to connect to your router if its not accessible.

I just changed it to WPA2.

Are you sure you haven't just connected to somebody elses network? I seriously doubt a hacker replaced your wireless router while you weren't looking.

Yes. My computer is using a wired connection to the modem.

Do you still have the same problem?
Not on this computer. It's wired only.
Do you have a wifi card in your computer then? Or is your router setup (for whatever reason) to connect to an upstream router over wifi?
It is also possible that someone is running another DHCP server on your network, and you are picking up alternate DNS settings from that. Once again, I have no idea why someone would do that (especially by redirecting to such a blatant router configuration page) besides misconfiguration.

If the security was WEP then someone might have probably cracked your wep password and might have used the amped wireless range extender to connect to your wifi.
If it was open then there is no need to crack at all.
I am quite unsure why amped page might have shown up though because it shouldn't automatically unless you are connected to the range extender instead of your wifi.
It can depend on your DNS maybe.
