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

Same problem with the Lego case.... (1)

No place to attach a cable lock to the case!

I can make a cable lock with lego and integrate it into the case, but without superglue it is useless...

To paraphrase Foghorn Leghorn, "That's a joke, son."

I made my own router case.... (3, Funny)

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]

Hmm, given the speed of the network here that might just work :)

I thought something similar (1)

Weaselmancer (533834) | more than 4 years ago | (#30772252)

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. =)

Anonymous Coward | more than 4 years ago | (#30754782)

It's not a case for the WRT54GL case, it's a case for just the circuit board...
