We had a thread about this a few months ago; these devices all use javascript which is not supported in lynx. In certain cases (like power bars) the device will return usable html after login (you can package up a POST with the blank username/pass combination) but most of the home routers like Linksys are all javascript controlled.

I wanted to use it to connect to my linksys router. It has a password,
but no username. I'm unable to use lynx because as soon as I hit
"return" for the username, it asks me "proceed without username/pw
[y/n]". In my view, it should only ask this after I've had a chance to
enter a password, because as it stands, no matter what answer I give,
I am unable to connect to my router.
