How to take apart TG789vn and extract the parts from it

So I recently got a box full of Thomson TG789vn routers with half of them not working properly. Say “Hello” to lightnings hitting the power lines in Estonia. With nothing to lose it was decided to pop one open to see if there is any obvious damage that can be repaired. Surprisingly, there were no guides on the internet on how to open TG789vn without breaking anything, so here is one.

Stuff You Will Need

  • Thomson TG789vn router
  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Flat-blade screwdriver
  • Two hands and a little bit of common sense

Needless to say, before doing any of this you need to turn off your router and unplug everything from it. This will also void your warranty and I will not be held responsible for any damage you may or may not inflict upon your router.
