It's just a (crazy, IMO) javascript routine. And I think it's crazy 
because most of the embedded web servers on those devices just serve very 
basic html formatted pages so there is no need to force the user to 
upgrade the browser in order he can operate with it :-/

Most sure you can also manage the router via telnet but on these days 
that should not be needed at all.

I was going to suggest that (first solve the router's management 
issue) :-)
