I can not understand why the power consumption measured in this site is so different from what I have calculated... They must have done something wrong. It can't be as low as 2-3 Watts.
I've repeated the measurements (with the WRT54GS idle in AP mode) and I got the same results (and other measurements agree).
don't know and don't fancy probing all those little solder pads, risking short circuit.
That's what happend on my router... Two days ago, I was doing some analysis on the PWM of the voltage regulator circuit when a probe slipped causing an instand short circuit between two pins of the AC1501 Now I get a wrong pulse on the regulator's output, which results lower output voltage (arround 2.4V)
If I'm lucky only the voltage regulator is burned (and I'll change it with an equivalent regulator), but I'm affraid that the damage is bigger. Now I have to desolder it to check it alone.
