  • To enable the firewall you simply put a red brick in front of the port.

  • No place to attach a cable lock to the case!

    But I ran out of Black Bricks halfway through so I switched to blue, then I ran out of them and had to switch to yellow bricks. I ended up using the pink bricks from my daughter's LEGO pony set and before long it became "Linksys and the amazing technicolor dream router". The I had to use the little lego people to fill in the holes on the top of the router so now I have a LEGO policeman dry humping a LEGO baker so i can cover the hole on the top of it. I also installed some killer wheels from the racecar set so now I can easily move the router across my desk without lifting it up off the surface of the desk. I think next I will try to integrate the lego mindstorms kit into it so that it can move around my desk on it's own and replace my computer's automatic cup holder which has been acting up lately...

    Though the Wi-Fi Antennas look pretty cool with the space set radar dishes on them...

  • I will hunt you down and stab you in the face. Do not say "legos".
    • But, you your self said "the word that we cannot say". Twice.

      King Arthur: Cut down a tree with a herring? It can't be done. [the Knights of Ni scream and cover their ears]
      Knight 1: Don't say that word!
      King Arthur: What word?
      Knight 1: I cannot tell! Suffice to say, is one of the words the Knights of Ni cannot hear!
      King Arthur: How can we not say the word if you don't tell us what it is? [the Knights of Ni scream again]

      • We must now hunt him down and sab him in the face.
        • Yes, Yes I meant sab dangit!

          Ever wish you could stop your finger as you read the typo and the mouse click on submit is already occurring?

      • I had the same idea from the same guys, but a different movie: [kokos.cz]

        OFFICIAL: Stop! Stop, will you?! Stop that! Stop it! Now, look! No one is to stone anyone until I blow this whistle! Do you understand?! Even, and I want to make this absolutely clear, even if they do say 'Jehovah'.

        Oh BTW, LEGOS LEGOS LEGOS. Nyah, GP. =)

    • I'd suggest less coffee for you.
    • Legos.
  • the Linksys WRT54GL CASE made entirely out of LEGO bricks.

    There, fixed that for you. (legos make poor microchips)
