    • The antenna connectors have gold-plated coax connectors and standard Wi-Fi antenna connectors.

    • What's underneath the heat-shrink? A ferrite bead to minimize interference.

    • Testing out the light pipe with an LED throwie...

    • The light pipe takes light from tiny surface-mount LEDS on the motherboard and refracts it to the panel.

    • Here are all the LEDS:

      • 8 of the LEDS that work with the light pipe

      • One more surface mount LED

      • A white LED for illuminating the Qwest logo

      • A dual-color (red/green) LED for the WPS status indicator.

    • The empty shell that once held a DSL modem.

    • The 2 detachable Wi-Fi antennas. Nothing to tear down here!

    Kommentar hinzufügen

    • Repairability score: 8/10

    • The entire device is held together with only 4 screws.

    • The Wi-Fi antenna connectors are screwed in and the cables are not soldered to the board.

    • The antennas are replaceable as well.

    • The heat sink is soldered in place, making removal difficult.

    • The Wi-Fi card is soldered in and held in place with silicon adhesive, making it impossible to remove without damaging the card or the device.

Awesome teardown! These things have gotten so simple. Those antennas would be pretty easy to repurpose for something else.

What are the part number, volts, and amps of the power supply?
