alter Pwd query for access to the control interface

    I just flashed the firmware of my WRT54GL with the 1.25 tomato.

    As you all probably know, whenever I access the status interface of my router (via IP in the browser), there comes this password popup where I have to enter user & pwd.

    This annoys me.

    I rather would like to have the status page displayed without pwd query too see the basic information (connected, uptime, etc.), but if I want to see more details or change the configuration, then (and only then) should come the pwd query.

    I already checked the basic configuration options and some of the mods, but couldn't find such an option.

    Did I overlook something? Any hints/ideas?

    Think differently: What you see in your browser is not a status page, its a web-based administration tool.

    What you want would only be possible if you rewrote the webinterface...

    It is a sensible request - and is provided by dd-wrt and lots of devices such as printservers - a basic status readonly page, password only required to change more detail.

    I use Safari web browser, and ask to save the login details. Safari enters them automatically, so I always see pages instantly. (I see other web browsers require you to click something before they do so).

    Is that what you need?
