Note

When possible use modifications that can be removed so the device can be returned for service in the same condition that it was provided as at time of purchase.

Otherwise it is likely the warranty would be void.

If a customer makes a decision that it is acceptable to void the warranty and chooses to paint the device anyway, here are some guidelines when painting RF (Access Point) devices.

Tip

Use a paint that has no conductive properties (i.e. metal colored flakes etc.)

Here are some paints that were tested that displayed good RF characteristics.
