If you end up needing vents at the top, the just drill a bunch more weep
holes in the bottom to allow air to rise through the interior and out
Also, you don't necessarily need vents, especially not for simple short
term testing of an enclosure or mount location. But once you find the
sweet spot, you definitely want weep holes for condensation and if hit
by the sun and/or working hard at all that router is going to want a bit
of airflow. For short testing of your setup no reason to go crazy on it.
No holes on the top surface. I'm imagining the box mounted vertically
for airflow and moisture weeping reasons, and most routers are designed
to stand up on edge these days.
I don't know if antenna polarity becomes an issue or not with internal
antenna designs mounted 90 off vertically as I haven't worked that way
with internal antenna routers.
