you may want to watch out for the buttons, like reset etc... either make sure they are accessable, or rewire them.

sounds good, but i recommend that if you keep it in it case that you install a fan (remember, dremels are your friend)

if you don't keep the router within its own case, (ie: just simply put board and ports inside, with buttons and aerials on outside or comp case) then best idea is to set a fan to blow right at it, (again, dremels are your friend, don't worry about wheels, if your lucky you can pick up a 1000pc kit for like 50-60$, just cut hole right on side of case...)

I'm telling you to do this because often the routers tend to crash and need to be reset.... proper cooling negates this.

I thought about doing this a few months ago but when i went to do it i found there isnt enough room in my case, tanda333 is right I no my router get quite hot after a long time, if it covered up (eg a jumper chucked over it  :lol:) it tens to over heet and doesnt work untill its cooled.

Just take all the hardware out of the router case and mount it in an empty cdrom slot with mabe a fan in another cdrom slot. Leaves you room to run the antenna out of the front of the box but you would need to have a router with small enough internals to fit in something like an old ATX case with enough expansion space for the fan, etc. You would probably have to make some sort of mount for the router, but that goes without saying.
