Today I document the teardown of a 3Com Access Point 8000, an older device.
3Com WL306
A blast from the past

Only one screw
Only one screw to open

RF Shields Removed
Opened, with RF Shields removed

A wild 4 pin header appeared. The CPU is an Intersil ARM940t Prism chipset, 8MB RAM, and some flash

So many crystals
The rest of the 2.4 gear
