Hello guys.. i wanted to open my router case because the power button is getting stuck so i wanted to fix it from inside.. but its really almost impossible to disassemble the router case..

i removed the 2 screws and the router case is getting opened little bit from the back using a visa card.. but the front and the sides won't come off even with pressure, its like stuck with super glow or something..

now I'm afraid to use more force because i feel i might break something.. i don't know what to do..

my router model number is TP-Link TD-W8901G..

Any Help will be appreciated.

Can't find any info the web for getting the casing open, but if you've made sure all the relevant screws have been removed there will be probably be a few concealed plastic clips around the seam which you need to carefully "pop" with a flat-bladed screwdriver.

i've made sure that i removed all visible screws.. but some people say that i might find hidden screws under the rubber feet.. but I'm not sure about that. would they design a router with a few visible screws and other invisible?
