this is a very good point. :) cheers for that

then the problem is not actually sending a HTTP POST request but
getting the result from it or even modifying the headers. None of the
modern browsers allows you to read the iframe source. Well, actually
it is more likely to get thins working on IE6...

on the other hand, most devices have some sort of authentication
mechanism... most likely HTTP Basic Auth... that needs to go to the
headers of the request and it is not possible to perform it HTML forms
unless unless you are using the XmlHttpRequest object from JavaScript.

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"
<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.
