+1, it sounds like you might be better off building a MicroITX or PicoITX system that's small, low power, silent, and still powerful enough to run the router software.

comment How to rebuild a Li Ion laptop battery?
Actually, the tab that broke is at the strap that connects 2 cells together side-by-side, not at the end of the cells. Looks like I'm just going to solder a short wire to hold them together, unless there are better ways to repair tabs.

comment Will leaving the laptop power brick connected to the power socket be dangerous?
I've noticed warm unconnected power bricks of many devices large and small. It is best to leave unplugged unless your electricity is free.

comment Password Cracking Windows Accounts
EFS will only provide a requirement that only the owning user or possibly local admin can access the files. If the PC becomes compromised, this would be trivial to circumvent. See: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Encrypting_File_System
