    • To open the Linksys WAP11, you will need a Phillips #1 screwdriver and a pair of metal tweezers.

    • Use the tweezers to remove the two rubber boots on the front two legs. The easiest way to do this is to insert the tweezers into the hole in the face of the boot. Once you are hooked behind the boot, pull outwards.

    • This will reveal two small Phillips-head screws. Remove them.

    • Keep these two screws together.

    • Using two hands (one on the front of the device and the other on the back) apply pressure to the top and bottom seal while pulling the front and back away from each other.

      • This requires significant amount of force.

      • The seal is located where the blue plastic meets the black plastic. This is where you will apply pressure.
