Oh, I don't know if that's a new feature.  I recall getting a DSL modem 
and getting instructions to bring up Internet Explorer after the 
ethernet cable had been connected to my computer.

Well, I don't normally use Windows, but I have a couple of systems with 
XP installed, so I dragged them out and plugged in the modem.  I brought 
up IE8 without keying in a URL and viewed the display "Configuring your 
modem" was the message along with the pretty colors of the modem sender.

Holy cow!  It didn't even ask if I wanted to point the browser at the 
configuration page.  Shades of COFEE.  Does anyone else think that this 
is a great feature and not a security hole?
