I'd be interested in hearing about your actual experience with the linksys 
browser interface. I hope it turns out better than my experience with the 
SMC products which are very similar to linksys--based on the same chipset, 

My experience, based on using both lynx under linux and IE5.5 under Win98, 
were not that good. I was unable to actually activate the interface 
without sighted assistance. Once active, I was able to set various options 
using lynx (but not IE, strangely). My current status is that my SMC 
server/router seems locked up for some reason--probably my attempts to 
move off the default 192.168.123.* addressing scheme.

I tried looking at the source code for the web interface. There's a lot of 
javascript, at the very least.
