You're not going to see much really. A couple of IC chips, and capacitors maybe.
Unless you plan on reverse engineering the IC's or something.

It is both curiosity and reverse engineering.

Sorry but we cant help you reverse engineer. I bet there are somethings in there that are copyrighted to Netgear. Which would most definately violate Rule #5.
