javascript - send data to server without page reload

I'm new to javascript and need some guidance.  I have a page with a form and a text input box.  I want to send  or I should say "submit" the data in the text box to the server but I don't want that page to be reloaded.  

Here's the challenge though: The server I'm using is an embedded server that is very limited in functionality.  The only way I can send data to it is in a "get" format (i.e. "ip addr/?c=xxx").  What is some javascript code that allows me to effectively do a submit without reloading the page?

Alternatively, what would the HTML / javascript code look like to put my text box into a frame, submit the text from that frame and just reload that frame?
