Default ???Typed my own IP into Firefox???

While visiting http://www.whatismyip.com I got a wild hair and decided to try typing my own IP addy into the address bar.
I was expecting to get an error message of some sort. But instead I got a pop up dialog box asking me for my user name and password to access "index.htm" located at my IP address.
Any ideal what this is all about

That's probably it. I'm using a Speedstream 5200 DSL modem.
