    Linksys Modd.

    Tools & Materials:
    Soldering iron
    Screw Driver
    Flat Head
    Heat Shrink Tubing
    Vantec Fans: HDC-502A
    Vantec iCEBERQ Coper Heatsinks CCB-RS8
    Fan Cable extender
    Hot Glue Gun
    WRT54G or WRT54GS
    RT31P2

    Please Match the Numbers with the Pics.


    #1 Fist we going to take apart the casing. On the latest WRT54G and GS the casing needs to be unscrew by taking the two boots on the front out. under there you will find a screw on each side once those screws are out than is a matter of snapping the case out. Follow the example..

    #2 After the casing is off you want to take the mother board out. The motherboard is hold by a screw right in the top of the board once is out you can slide the board down and up and it will come right out. Look at the pic so you will now where the screw is at.

    #3 That is dun is time to solder and place heat sinks in place.

    #4 First to solder… We going to get the end of the fan cable extender cut it in half and use the male end and solder it to the power connector in the board. Positive goes in and Negative goes out. Standard in all linksys routers.

    #5 Than we going to bring the connector over to the top and under the wireless cable connection, after that is dun is time to install the heat sinks. Be careful do not apply to much pressure don’t want to crush the chip(In the RT31P2 you have more RAM and Decoding and Encoding Engine so for the bigger chips use bigger heat sinks and for the smaller use regular Vantech RAM Heta sinks.)

    #6 Now we are ready for the Fans. First align them in place once align glue them with the Hot Glue Gun.

    #7 Now we are pretty much dun all we have to do is put it all back together. Make sure that before you put the face on that you can look inside and that the heat sinks are not in the way of the fan or any thing else it should be about a1inc in space.

    #8 Now that we are sure put it all back together and you are dun.

    We also modd it a RT31P2 is the same step only more chips due to Voice compression requiring extra RAM and Decoding and Encoding engines. We will post the pics as well.. just follow the same steps.
