Build a Lego Router

Posted: 18/01/2010 in Hacking, How to....

We love the Linksys WRT54GL router for its extreme hackability (it’s what we used to turn our $60 router into a $600 router with DD-WRT or with Tomato), so we couldn’t help but appreciate this fun WRT54GL Lego mod.

Clever DIYer Luke Anderson got an urge to do some building, and realized that his not-so-attractive router would fit nicely and might look rather sleek inside some Lego blocks, so he got building (which you can see in the timelapse video above). His step-by-step guide contains Creative Commons licensed design documents and assembly images, so if you’re looking for a geeky weekend diversion, this may be just the ticket.

While you’re at it, consider doing some more functional DIY WRT54GL router work with our two previous guides.
