Introduction

This does not require disassembly of the router. Simply remove accumulated dust & dirt to help prolong the lifespan.

Tools

Parts

No parts required.

The router is made with ambient air vents that operate on convection. As the router heats up from activity, warm air moves out of the router, to be replaced by cooler air. Dust, dirt, & grime limit the effectiveness of the cooling, causing the circuit board to heat up and break down  & fail faster.
