HOWTO: Toshiba L650 Tear Down Guide 
Well my wife finally dropped the laptop (we all know it's inevitable) and of course that is not covered under warranty (sucked in Good Guys I _didn't_ pay for the extended warranty!! HAR HAR) so now we have 1 broken LCD. My Mrs., being green, called the Good Guys same day it happened and so now there's no way to get it fixed under warranty. The screen is clearly smashed and has been dropped anyhows so I doubt it would've ever got done under warranty.

So now the internet masses can benefit from our misfortunes! Here you will find a guide on how to (almost completely) tear down a Toshiba Satellite L650! I looked for an LCD removal guide before doing it myself and there is one dodgy guide that doesn't seem to have photos of my exact model so I tore mine apart and cameraed it along the way.

This guide should cover removing the following parts:
CDROM
Touchpad/Top Front Bezel
Keyboard
Screen (the whole screen as a unit)
Screen Front Bezel
LCD panel

Removing the HDD and mainboard are even simpler than the LCD but I have not provided steps for those here as I had no need to do it. (Sorry)

NOTE: This page has large images (about 20Mb worth) so don't view it if you're on a slow connection! Sorry the images are big but I made them big so people can see what to do. Also, I am lazy and didn't downsize or compress them properly. That happens when you get stuff on the internet for free.

As usual: no responsibility. Read More...

1. I struggle with Linux networking as it is (routing settings mainly)
2. I've never done two networks that comminicate with each other

So I guess I can start by "drawing" my network setup, then drawing the setup I want to have. Read More...

OpenWRT on a Netgear WGT634U Wireless Router 

Updated! Feb 26th, 2010


After sniping a Netgear WGT634U wireless router on eBay I couldn't wait to install OpenWRT on it and start setting it up on my home network. Of course, when I got it and installed OpenWRT I immediately ruin the network settings like I always do when I try to configure any Linux box. That's usually not a problem because when the network on said Linux box isn't working you just turn its monitor on and grab its keyboard and fix them. Can't do that on the WGT634U because the only user interface to the device is via the network! Read More...
