Step 3: Solder Pins Together
solder the pins together
Step 4: Reassemble Router
before attempting to power on, be sure antennas are installed or you can damage the radios
re-assemble router in reverse order, you can leave off switch spring and retainer but install the switch button so that the hole is covered and less dust goes into the case. make sure you firmly squeeze case so that all clips go back in place and use a standard size screwdriver to torque screws all the way down
enjoy not having to deal with a router that randomly powers itself off
