Remove Components

Before lifting the router, you must remove the following components:

To remove the components from the router, perform the following procedure:

  1. Slide each component out of the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  2. Label each component as you remove it so you can reinstall it in the correct location.
  3. Immediately store each removed component in an electrostatic bag.
  4. Do not stack removed components. Lay each one on a flat surface.

Note: For complete instructions on removing router components, see “Install the Router Without a Mechanical Lift” in the M120 Internet Router Hardware Guide.

Lift the Router into the Rack

Lifting the chassis and mounting it in a rack requires three people. The empty chassis weighs approximately 110 lb (49 kg).

  1. Ensure the rack is in its permanent location and is secured to the building.
  2. Position the router in front of the rack or cabinet, centering it in front of the mounting shelves. Use a pallet jack if one is available.
  3. With one person on each side and one person in the front, hold onto the bottom of the chassis and carefully lift it onto the large and small (if installed) mounting shelves.
  4. Slide the router onto the mounting shelves until the mounting brackets or front-mounting flanges contact the rack rails or spacer bars (depending on your type of installation). The shelves ensure that the holes in the mounting brackets and the front-mounting flanges of the chassis align with the holes in the rack rails.
  5. If you are installing the router in a four-post rack or cabinet, install a mounting screw into each of the holes aligned with the threaded holes in the spacer bars. If you are installing the router in an open-frame rack, install a mounting screw into each of the open mounting holes aligned with the rack, starting from the bottom.
  6. Visually inspect the alignment of the router. If the router is installed properly in the rack, all the mounting screws on one side of the rack should be aligned with the mounting screws on the opposite side and the router should be level.

Reinstall Components

  1. Slide each component into the chassis evenly so that it does not become stuck or damaged.
  2. Tighten the captive screws for each component.

Note: Make sure that all empty slots are covered with a blank panel before operating the router.
