Can you send post method with javascript?

I am new to html and javascript. I am trying to do a website for user authentication for a wifi network. I am using a zyxel g-4100 device. The equipment requires the usage of html code to allow/deny access. The code follows:

I am trying to use javascript to have the user enter an access code which will return the url to the zyxel box rather than a simple agree/disagree button. The code follows:

I am sure there are a ton of errors in this code, as I said I am a novice. My problem is that with each code i get a different response from the zyxel unit. Of course the first code does exactly as needed. I think the reason the second code doesnt work right is that the first code is using the post method. Is there a way to incorporate the post method to see if this fixes my dilemma? Or, does anyone have any ideas or suggestions? Thanks

Rather than use document.location, continue to use forms and submit them under script control.

Give the form an id (rather than a useless name), and then to submit the form:
