    Now how the hell can you kill the RE500, and are you sure that it's dead?

    I was drilling a hole in the housing to mount a pigtail adapter, and I (stupidly) didnt remove the board from the housing. The drill bit only just clipped one of the tiny transistors/resistors/whatever on the board and snapped it off. I thought it would clear the board easily. The unit powers on just fine, but the WiFi network never appears. It's definitely dead.

    Lesson learnt! :roll:

    That's a pity!... And the PCB comes out so easy...
