Erm, not a physical "browse"... As in IE/firefox/pocketIE/etc.

The firmware date/version of the device is what you are after, not a
physical label.

Depending on the version you may or may not be able to see this without
a password.

I figure the best you can do is to suggest to the library that an update
is needed, if indeed this is the issue.

You did not state whether it is a "g" wireless router or "b", but
firmware updates do address what you describe. For the old "b" wireless
router I HAD to update the firmware before a 3835 winCe device could
function properly. A G router is newer, but still there could be
issues. More info on Linksys G updates are here (no doubt the address
will have to be fixed for wraparound):
