Default My old CISCO Valet

So I just purchased a new Cisco Valet Plus (M20). I have the Cisco Valet (M10) and I don't want to get rid of it. I am running a Desktop, two laptops, and an Ipad in my house. I was wondering if there was anything creative I could do with my old Cisco router because I don't want to sell it. Any suggestions would be GREAT!

You have an old one, in another words? What was wrong with the first one?

The firmware? you could've done that with your old one. You could set that up as a free wifi for your neighborhood.

Or just keep it in your closet for safe keeping incase the new one breaks for some odd reason. Have an extra.

I assume what the OP means is s/he just wanted to upgrade the hardware.

You could take it apart, put a more powerful heatsink/fan combo on the main bits of it, paint the shell a cool color combo and have a real baller looking router. I'm not really sure what else you could do with it, but I'm sure there are some cool things you could do firmware wise with it.
