[thechat] finding WAN address

I have a Linux box sitting behind a Linksys router.  I want to create a
script that will find the external WAN address the router is presenting, and
update a remote file if that information has changed.  Most of it is
relatively simple, but I was wondering if there is a script already out
there, or easily creatable that does this?

There are Windows apps like IPPoster
(http://www.omconsults.com/ipposter.htm) that do this, but I'm looking for
one on Linux.
