It sounds like you have a virus.

First, do you have a password on your router?  If not, I'm guessing you have the "google redirect" virus infecting your router and probably the PC as well.

You need to disinfect your PC and reset your router.

Here is another thread where this is discussed at length:

download and install malwarebytes and hitmanpro.  You will find both these free tools will fix your problem.  You can get them at http://www.malwarebytes.org and http://www.surfright.nl/en/hitmanpro.  Install them, update them and do a quick scan with malwarebytes and the same with hitmanpro.  They are both very fast and effective anti-malware tools.

And most definately uninstall bearshare, you will never be free of viruses and malware if you have this running on your pc (the same goes for any file sharing software).

Good luck.
