Introduction

VOIP had Failed, after researching on the internet I found a forum page which gave a fix for a similar model. Replacing 2 capacitors fixed the VOIP

Turning the Router over you find 4 rubber feet hiding 4 Philips head screws.
  • Turning the Router over you find 4 rubber feet hiding 4 Philips head screws.

  • Remove the screws and turn the router back upright.

  • The top of the case should now lift off.

The C928 Capacitor 100uF 25v is the one talked about in the forum mentioned in the intro. While I was checking the solder side of the board I noticed there was a bad solder joint on this cap. You cant see it at this resolution though.

  • While checking the state of the other caps on the board I noticed that this one 1000uF 10v was also showing signs of heat stress.

  • Both capacitors were replaced.

  • You can see the new caps in position on the right.

  • For the princely sum AU $1.20 in parts, 20 mins setting up, 5 mins to fix, 5 mins to put it all away I have saved myself aprox $200 for a new VOIP router :)
