Anyone have experience disassembling a D-Link DIR868L Router? I can't seem to figure out if I'm supposed be able to take the top cover off or how to even take it off.
Hey man, I just thought I'd let you know that there's this really awesome website where you can enter a subject, phrase, even a very specific question like how to disassemble a D-Link DIR868L Router! It's free too! It's got some ads here and there as it is run by an advertising company, but the ads aren't too over-bearing like many websites have. Heck, their unofficial motto is "don't be evil" so you know they're cool.
Anyway, if you are interested in a site that can help you with simple things like this, here's the address: http://www.google.com/
Just don't tell them I sent you! XP
If you're talking about this video
Then no, that isn't even close to what I'm looking for, that model's top portion doesn't even look the same, I already took the bottom screws off and I'm just trying to figure out how the rest goes. The only other model that is closest is the DIR865L and I can't even find anything on that one either.
There definitely is one. Use a razor or something to get under this edge here.
and the bottom, just to prove I unscrewed the bottom screws
The adhesive kinda ruined the sticker but whatevs, got it off
Aah gotcha. I almost did the same thing to my EA6500v2. Flashed dd-wrt, then went to advancedtomato and it got stuck bootlooping. After doing a 30-30-30 reset for the 10th time it magically came to life.
Fuck I guess that's one way to spot warranty voiders. Hope it works out OP, the feeling of bricking expensive shit is the worst.
I'm betting it's not meant to be opened, and the only way to do it, it to pretty much destroy the housing, and thus voiding any warranty on it. Welcome to the world of consumer electronics.
