Can WiFi routers be repaired?

Most routers consist of a single circuit board with attached connectors for power and networking cables. 

They have no parts to be repaired or replaced except by a technician. Even so, the cost of diagnosing a problem and making circuit component repairs may be more than the cost of replacing with a new device.

Some examples of things to avoid are placing your router undeath or behind metal furniture, right next to a tiled bathroom, or near a fish tank.

Some electronic devices, such as microwaves, garage door openers, and baby monitors can also interfere with your Wi-Fi signal causing slowdowns and disconnects.

How many years do Wi-Fi routers last?

But over time, even the best Wi-Fi systems will begin to age and eventually need to be replaced. Experts recommend replacing your router at least every five years—and every two to three years for those of you who use several high-bandwidth devices and smart home devices.
