I think were a bit off the original topic now.  I really don't consider
physically damaging the router by ripping out the console port a viable
security method but sure if that floats your boat by all means destroy
the router and buy a new one if you ever need to "recover" your
destroyed one. /shrug


(again these are my thoughts not the companies)

If you have physical access you can still open the box pull the NVRAM 
and your back in business. in response to: What about physically 
disabling all the external ports ?

If you pull the NVRAM and place it in another router ? Otherwise I don't
understand after you physically disable (remove ) the external ports,
how you could work around it ?
