The PCB is a bit redesigned. Most noticeable points are the presence of an actual power button top left in photos , and that J10 is labeled anyway, I've not been able to get anything from there neither with 8N1 nor with other speeds.
There is also a plastic sheet covering the bottom of the PCB, maybe to help heat dissipation. Not so noticeable is the fact that the LED corresponding to port1 is doubled, being similar to the power led. Tftp upload of firmware seems not straightforward. See this page for details and pictures of the WAGNv2. Remove the four screws on the base of the case.
The case is then secured by one small and one large gray clip from rear to front on each side of the case. At the front of the case, there are two large black clips.

Elias Plastiras. For the most part, this all-in-one router is great. But its wireless performance was a little underwhelming in our tests, as the router delivered slightly slower results than we were expecting from its In our wireless tests, the WAGN delivered an average throughput of 5. Still, it was consistent throughout our test period and it delivered slightly better performance than the WRTN when running Transferring data to our
