Default 2Wire 2701HG-B DSL router power supply repair

If your 2Wire 2701HG-B DSL modem/router/wireless acts strangely, it's
probably the power supply. I decided it was time to fix some 2Wire
power supplies:

Three of the five had visibly bulging caps. I replaced the caps
(1000uF 16v) in all five power supplies as all of them showed high
ESR.

Cracking the case is easy. Insert in bench vise equipped with
rubber covered jaws, and compress until you hear the glue crack.
Repeat for all sides and it should just pop open. Duco cement to
seal back shut. Test with a 3.3 ohm 10 watt load resistor for 5.1VDC.

Repair before Recycling.

What about the smaller cap under the diode or is it just that same
one?

Using a vice I crack the side with the cable out, first, as the case
"welding" is already weakened there. Then guitar plectrum to force open at
the corners. I assume Duco is a trade name for plumbing polythene waste pipe
solvent.

It's a nitrocellulose and solvent concoction. Lots of acetone thrown
in to soften the plastic. Model airplane glue or dope would be a good
approximation. Works well with ABS. I picked it because it's brittle
and can be cracked again for rework.

Oops. I didn't check that capacitor. I'll crack one open later today
and check it. I don't think it's a problem because all 5 wall parts
had good clean output, at rated voltage, with a nearly full load.
