    For those of you that are wondering how to take the v3 apart the directions for the 2.0 and below work however there is one catch. On the 3 they have added 4 screws that are underneath the feet pads. The feet pads can be easily removed with a small screwdriver, there is nothing holding them on except for friction. As for the screws they are small philips head screws one under each foot. You only really need to take the two front feet screws off to be able to take the router apart however if you want to 'completely' remove the mainboard from the plastic you need to take out the remaining two screws which can be done before or after you take off most of the casing. One thing to mention is that the LED's are barely on there, they are no better at staying put than a jumper so take care not to bump them too hard when you remove the front bezel. You do not need to bother sticking the two front screws in after taking the router apart it snaps together rather snug and requires force to get it back apart.

    (Discaimer: This is merely how you could take your router apart I do not recommend it and you may break it in the process. Use this information at your own risk.)
