SBS 2011 - clients redirected to Remote Web Access

I just inherited this server so my background on it is minimal.  Today the server was accidentally rebooted.  Suddenly no one can browse websites.  If I type in google.com I am redirected to Remote Web Access.  To my knowledge nothing was changed other than the accidental reboot.  I can't find what it redirecting it and it's happening on all of the clients as well as the server.  My Windows Server experience is extensive but my SBS experience is minimal.

No one can browse until I fix this.

In SBS console, run connect to internet wizard, & fix my network.
If that don't fix it. we need to see ipconfig /all on server &  a workstation

Found it.  It's called Dashboard in SBS 2011 but I dont' see Connect to Internet as an option.  Only Remote Web Access.

Here are my ipconfig /all results.  The issue happens on all devices including the server.  I have remote connectivity, users can get email.  BUT no one can browse using either IE or Chrome.  When you type in a domain name (ex. Google.com) it redirects to you the Remote Web Access page on the server.

Apparently in SBS 2011 Essentials it's called Dashboard but unfortunately it doesn't have the Network option.  Also I changed the DNS as you described.  The weird thing is that I can ping by domain name as well as IP I just can't use a browser.  It's not an internet connectivity thing.  It's a browser issue.  No matter what domain I type in in the browser either at the server or a workstation I get a certificate error and then if I choose continue to this website it takes me to the Remote Web Access page.

Unfortunately (and fortunately) the problem resolved itself on a reboot of the router.
