    • Remove the rubber inserts inside the the two purple feet located on the router's front case.

    • This may be a challenge, so try the following two methods:

      • Use a plastic opening tool. Insert the flat end of the tool into the seam and slowly pry the rubber feet out.

      • Use a metal spudger. Insert the point of the metal spudger directly into the hole of the rubber feet and pry the insert out.
