Documents for the device on the Ruckus site  • Downloads
  • "Ruckus Wireless" and "Giterdone 6" is silkscreened on the top
of the board in the FCC photos and on a production unit's board.
"FAB 1001200 REV D" is on the back of the board.
  • "2976268903 REV G" is silkscreened (w/ additional non-silkscreened text
of "FAB 1001200 REV G") on the bottom of the board of a production unit.
The production board is using all TAICON capacitors.


The power adapter included with the device seems to be a DVE DSA-12R-12

AUS 120120 (100-120VAC ~ 50/60Hz, 0.3A -> 12VDC, 1A).
