dlinksearch has hijacked my address bar

when I type in the address bar a web site, for example "espn" it throws me to a search results page which says, "Did you mean espn.com?" In the address bar this appears, http://www1.dlinksearch.com/main?url=espn WHAT IS dlinksearch??? and why has it taken over my address bar?

Turns out this is a setting that DLink have helpfully added in their router firmware. The solution is to go to the router settings, find setup/internet/manual internet connection setup and unclick "Enable Advanced DNS Service".

Sorry if I'm late, but the best way to remove it is to do this.

Doing that also speeds up web browsing and adds security features.
