|Hello, I'm looking to find a new home for my WRT160n v3. I accidentally fried a chip when I plugged the wrong power cord into it. I think it is a power regulator or something similar, as it is close to the power supply jack (and it responded badly to the wrong power supply). If you have any soldering experience and knowledge of the guts of a WRT160n, perhaps you would like to repair this (or you could use it for parts. I couldn't bring myself to throwing it away.
Aside from the one chip, the rest of the motherboard looks like it's in great condition. I would be willing to give it to whoever wants it for $5 plus the cost of shipping.
The chip is an 8 pin, labeled "U2" on the circuit board, and it looks like the model number starts with 5106 AAD...
Please let me know if you are interested.
