      It aint 'arf hot

      Do all the Sky router/modem run hot or is it just mine? My D-link 624+ never got hot, the cable modem (Terayon) did get warm though but nothing like the Netgear thing it's nearly melted a hole in the carpet.

      Try standing the router on the legs plastic supplied or alternatively just lean it up against something. This helps to keep it a bit cooler.

      It seems that some people do report their routers getting hot, although, mine barely gets warm.

      Hi,

      Mine also gets very hot, I have put the feet on so it can stand upright, but makes no difference. Although you can almost fry an egg on it, it doesn't seem to give my any problems, ie speeds are great, not many crc errors? Most likely will burn itself out or at least have a short lifespan?

      Regards,

      David

      The Netgears do get hot if not stood up, its a known fact. Thats why there are ventilation holes all the way round top and bottom. Saying that mines only just luke warm to the touch and is in a well ventilated spot close to my desk with no direct sunlight on it.
