toothpicks into my WRT54GL

    I've just realised that a toothpick is perfectly fits into the holes at the top of my WRT54GL.
    If I put a toothpick into every hole as deep as i can, can it hurt my router?

    Gotta ask why?!

    Those holes are for airflow. If you plug them, hot air can't escape. The router could overheat.

    Some one has way too much time available. ;-)
    I guess if you want to over heat the router you might try this.

    It keeps the tinfoil from sticking to it. My friend's aunt uses cotton swabs though, they don't puncture the foil. Her cheesecake looks a little unusual.
