using lynx to access my router


help, i need to connect to my router through my ssh client

right now i am using lynx to access it, but i cannot get in because when it asks for the username and password it requires both, but the username to access the router is blank. how can i get it to try connecting with a password without a username?

Try pressing tab to move around from text box to text box maybe?

1. you know lynx is a web browser?
2. if you want to SSH it, then it wont work. i have a d-link router and as i type i tried to ssh admin@my routers ip and it is hanging..

Whats your system specs and stuff. that might help us to help u

Cheers,
