Using Keygen to register RTL8186 "AP router" firmware

AP router firmware was one of my first choices to install as a substitute to the original firmware of my senao ECB-3220 accesspoint, because it offer much more features that the original firmware, some of which, but not restricted to: the ability to act as a router from both interfaces, ie the client side can be from the wireless end (ie the LAN port is from the ISP) or the client side can be from the LAN end(the ISP in this case is providing wireless internet) in addition to the fact that its in English!.
i found two types of keygens for the AP router on the net, APLicGen 2.1 which doesn't require Java Runtime Environment (JRE) and supports AProuter 6.1 & 7, WAP 3.6 & 4.1 (i have only tested the AProuter 6.1 and found it working with this version) and APLicGen which requires java and supports all the versions supported by the 2.1 version except AProuter 7.
the way this keygen worked for me is that i should enter the MAC address (without the semicolons) mentioned in the upload license file page rather than the one mentioned in the status page (the default page when you open the ip address of the access point).
the only difference between the two versions is the size and requirements of Java.
If for some reason the jar extension doesn't run for u by double clicking u can download and run jarfix.exe, which associates .jar extension with the appropriate java suite (ie it must be installed beforehand).

APLicGen2.1 (Supports AProuter7, doesn't require JRE)

(APLicGen1 smaller in size, requires JRE)

You can also check this site for the official APLicGen site.

Dreadful night fixing my laptop!

Seems that I had my own share of hardware dreadful trips!So circoficus would not be the alone any more in that field. Today I had the most dreadful event regarding computer hardware ever, While I was using my laptop something happened that made me rush into it(electrical power came!!) when I didnt realize that I am going to make the biggest mistakes of my life.
Hearing sound of a falling object , I rolled my eyes to it,it was my laptop on the floor, it fell from my desktop to the ground and the cd-rom slot ejected out, I run to it seeing that windows is still running but after few seconds it frozen ,restarting it I noticed that the cd-rom device is not recognizable! also the cd-rom device was a little bit out of its place.
Unconsciously I started using screwdriver trying to find out an answer of whats just happened, after a while of unscrewing tight screws(more than 20 ones) my fingers sored and blistered, something belled in my head WHAT THE HELL AM I DOING!
So after regaining my conscious ,I worked thru internet from my desktop pc trying to figure out a way to get access to my cd-rom device.
After some time browsing I reached to a site explaining how to change Acer Aspire 1264 (or some model of Aspire series) CD-ROM Driver fortunately that model and my travelmate 4060 were somehow alike.
The manual stated that in order to replace cd-rom device of a laptop the keyboard should be removed . Well that what I did, and after several attempts I got access to the screw that guards the cd-rom device !
Now I had to Re-place the cd-rom device back into its normal position and putting back all other stuffs in its place .That took me a while since it passed 1:00 am .
At about 2:00 am I started tha laptop ,and haaaaay what a relief the cd-rom works fine and what granted that playing HappyFeet movie,which gave me an idea about a name for my laptop (weird talking)
Now checking hard-disk for possible damage ,my D partition as windows stated is ok,so I had to check other partitions to confirm no bad sectors or the like of damage had occurred.
At the moment I think my day is finished and right now my keyboard is making funny clicking when pressing certain keys. Regarding this experience I am more attached than ever to my "HappyFeet" Laptop!

Here are some pictures documenting this event!

-Wrong step (Opening the back cover to reach CD-ROM)
