Tip & How-To about ASUS (RT-N16) Wireless Router
My trusty old Asus RT-N16 router suddenly died. I hoping it was just the power transformer... nope.
So I opened it up to see if it was something obvious. Yup! A cheap chinese capacitor had the tell tale bulge. If you look closely in the pic you can kinda see that the top of capacitor is bulging outwards. So, I picked up a replacement 680u capacitor (they didn't have a 16V so I used a 35V) for $1... and replaced the old one.
Voila... back to life again!
