On your internet browser go to the options/settings and find the area where you change your start page.

Delete what is in there and insert http://www.google.com
Press Apply Button at the bottom of the Window.
Then Press OK to get back to Browser.

Why im on Ask not google?


if you mean when searching in the address bar or "omnibox" as they seem to call it:
click the three lines at the top right corner, settings, (a new tab will open), the 4th group down is Search, you're set to Ask, just change it to Google. Just close the tab, it saves the change instantly.
If you mean the home page, also go to 3 lines, settings, and the second group "on startup" select "open a specific page or set of pages" and then click Set Pages. hover over any pages you don't want to open at startup and click the X to remove, and in the box for Add New Page, enter http://www.google.com/ then click ok, and close the tab.
If you mean something else, let me know exactly what you want and I'l try to help.

Under I.E it is as follows :

Make Google news my home page


Hi
Load Google Chrome. On the right side of the address bar is an icon consisting of 3 horiz bars. Click on this and then click on settings. A webpage will open. Under the On Start-up heading, click a dot into "open a specific page" and click on "set page". In the box which comes up type the address of the page you want. In your case I think it is
https://news.google.co.uk/nwshp?hl=en&ei=0iI8VIyzAcnnaLLggkA&ved=0CAoQqS4oCA
Having done that delete any other address that may be shown and close the settings page. Restart Chrome and it should open to Goggle News. Other browsers will have different ways to set the Home Page, but the above link will take you to Google News no matter which browser you use
Cheers

Every time i open my web browser it automatically brings me to http://192.168.1.1/FW_remote.htm and i don't know why, how do i get it to stop?


Try looking to see if your default homepage has been changed to this. Some browsers have a shortcut-button to "make this your default homepage" and if it was clicked when that router page was open, this may be your problem.


If you are using FIREFOX:
- Bring down the 'Tools' menu from the menubar (if you can't see it, press ALT+T) and select 'Options' at the bottom.
- Select the tab at left called 'General' and look at the 'Home Page' box. If this is set to http://192.168... then you can change it to whatever you like (e.g. http://www.google.com) and this should fix your problem.


IF you are using INTERNET EXPLORER:
- Bring down the 'Tools' menu from the menubar (if you can't see it, press ALT+T) and select 'Internet Options' at the bottom.
- Look at the 'Home Page' box. If this is set to http://192.168... then you can change it to whatever you like (e.g. http://www.google.com) and this should fix your problem.


IF your are using GOOGLE CHROME:
- Bring down the 'Settings' Menu by clicking the wrench at the top right of your browser window.
- From this menu, select 'Options' (Fourth from the bottom).
- Ensure that 'Open the home page' is ticked under the 'On Startup' section
- Below that look at the 'Home Page' section. If this is set to http://192.168... then you can change it to whatever you like (e.g. http://www.google.com) and this should fix your problem.

How do i get rid of my freeze and return to Google i


If you are asking how to get rid of freeze as a home page and get google back to being the home page, bring up the browser window and type google in the address bar. When Google loads, click on "Tools", scroll down to Internet Options, when the window comes up, home page will be the first area you see, click on "Use Current", this will set the current page to be the Home page.
