Repurposing an old Hitron CGN2 Modem

So I've had this CGN2-ROG modem sitting in my closet. Purchased it outright a while ago when upgrading to the faster plans only for it to be replaced by the CGN3.

Any way I can repurpose this to function as something else? (Switch, wifi extender/repeater) or is it basically trash?

Does Rogers still use this for any of their packages? Would anyone purchase this off Kijiji?

Maybe a door stopper? Paperweight? Desk Ornament?

Get one more and you'll have matching book ends.

GUT it! take it apart, and hang it in the garage wall of the board.
