    some days ago i ordered some heatsinks and a 80mm papst cooler to modify my router.

    I just tried to open the case of my router carefuly but after some mm's i stopped trying it, because the removement of the case seemed to make some bigger troubles than i was thinking...

    I'm using Linksys WRT45G V3.1 and also took a look at the inner life of it (Pictures shown at this page)

    It would be nice, if someone using the same router could give me some advise how to open the case.

    Thank and sorry for my broken engish ;)

    Thx for your answer. I successfully opend my router an was able to put on the heatsinks and to "install" the fan ;)

    But there is one last question :D

    My CPU clock is running at 240MHz, and i'm not shure how fare i can set it up? I mean 252MHz would be great, but i dont want to brick my baby :)

    Are there some experiences concerning the clock speed of my model ?

    people have been known to brick their routers via overclocking. i would tbh be very careful, the only way out of the bricked overclocked model is afaik JTAG. i think someone was able to use a cfe that was able to default to the normal speed but i am not sure on that.
