How to attach 'plunge lock lever' to Bosch 1617 EVS router. I had this router replaced because of corrosion, when I opened the case the lever was detached from plunger. Tricky to attach, any suggestions

I have been repairing the Bosch tools for quite a few years and I still hate putting those levers on. Unfortunatly,there are no "tricks", you just have to set the spring in the lever then use a small screw driver to set the other end in its slot. Then try to rotate the whole thing untill the lever goes into the proper notch. It usually takes me 5 or 6 times to get it in, sometimes it goes in first time (rare). Sometimes I'm at it for 1/2 an hour.

Good Luck

Wireless connection is intermittent

You may have interference with other devices in the same range as your router.
If you have Vonage then you may have issues with some routers also. If you do have Vonage, then try to make sure your router is not on the same leg of your networ as your vonage modem.

The plunge lock "slips" when the router is used in a table

You can try to adjust the lever that moves the plunge and see if that helps, but a plunge router isn't made for upside use. If you have the option and use the router upside down often, you may want to get a fixed base.
