Either your router is infected (strange) or something in the way browser / router. Such as some rouge browser plugin, proxy etc.
 
You can download different tool, say wget.exe and download the web page directly,
 
wget http://192.168.2.1/genmenu.asp
(wget does not process the content, so infection risk is minimal)
Zip it with password, and upload so that your virus team can see what's inside.

Tried the wget program and it does not seem to work for me.
Needs an Authorization to download.

Please add me to your list of victims of this problem. I have the Asus RT-N66U (vs. 3.0.0.4.270) and I'm running Windows 8 64. Extremely slow to connect to web user interface entering via Firefox or Internet Explorer. When connected, I can barely use any features of the interface, clicking on functions results in nothing happening. Turn off Network shield and everything is fine with web interface.

Normal internet usage is not affected by this problem, everything except access to router web/ interface.

I tried adding http://192.168.1.1/* to exclusions, but it didn't work.
Running Avast Free 7.0.1474 with all latest updates.

I've tried updating, but it says that all program and definitions are up to date (Still on 7 though).

How do I update to 8, there don't appear to be any options from in the program itself?

currently running 1489, windows7 x64 and when i try to reboot my ASUS RT-n56u rourter from inside the browser all 4 cores on my cpu max out, and my computer practically freezes. alt+cntr+del wont work and it takes me about ten minutes to get the mouse courser over the X on the browser to close it. after i close the browser all goes back to normal.  it doesn't happen as soon as i press reboot, it goes through the process and when it hits 98-100% the computer locks up. this is the only time i have this problem.
this happens with chrome and Firefox.
i also have spybotS&D and spywareblaster installed.

Wow, overkill, no wonder your pc is overloading, spybot is bad for overloading the cpu, poorly written, always been the same since first release years back, internet explorer is usually the one that's affected by spybot.

The problem is that Spybot contains a feature called TeaTimer which blocks new additions and most changes.
It is what's probably causing your problem.

Hi all,

I just started using Avast Free after discovering AVG was ramdomly causing system freezes on 2 of my Win7x64 systems.  Oddly 3 other Win7x64 never experienced the freezes.

Anyway since I started using Avast ver 2014.9.0.2011 everything has been working smoothly with no more freezes but I just discovered the same problem as has been discussed here, mainly that when I login to my Netgear FVS318g router I get a page of html or cgi code instead of the setup page.

The only way I have discovered to get the proper operation is to disable Web Shield completely.  I tried adding exclusions for the router URL and I tried excluding scanning scripts on the router URL but neither of those worked.

Is it a setup problem that I'm overlooking or what?

Thanks for any assistance.

barryd.
