Question

Wireless Router Management System

Hi guys.

Iv been planning to create an application using PHP or maybe JAVA where in it will configure a wireless router without interacting directly with it... I would like my application to act as a middle man between the user and the router to limit the user's access to the router.

My question is, is it possible for PHP or java to interact with any router?

Simple yes.

Sorry but this one is a simple question to answer. It's yes. I think your programming skill might be tested but nothing stops these languages from configuring a router.

Thanks, but the thing is, I have no idea where to start... Im thinking on using php for the reason that i think most wireless router are using web base application to configure their wireless security and etc., Can u please give me some clue on how and where to start?

I'd start with more research.

Remember that language choice is not much of an issue here. It's more about the language you write in and then crafting your solution.

I won't be able to teach you programming in a forum setting but there are many web pages about programming available today.
