Steven, which model and revision of router do you have? None of my WRT54GL v1.1 units have screws under the rubber feet, though there are holes to accomodate them. The front comes off without damage. The squeeze and pull did take some force, as I was disengaging two large clips (one on each side of the router.) I think step should be “remove the front rubber feet and remove screws (if present.)” This would help prevent damage and frustration with the great many very similar routers that may have screws.
