Has anyone noticed how hot the sky router gets - is so hot i could fry an egg on it - its just the right size to cook one whilst i wait to get thorugh to sky on !

well if u use the legs and stand it up its then only hot enough to keep your rolls warm.
but the cooking on it isnt avised them little holes will let the juices in i think you need to creat a router heatsnink that allso double up as a mini george forman grill

it is a known problem with this model - lots of complaints about resulting instability

Yup annoyingly I had a similar Netgear model expire several months ago. It died with the top of the case melted(!) These things might constitute a fire risk? Certainly they run VERY hot.
I replaced it with another Netgear which also ran hot. (This was after a brief ten minutes with a Belkin router which was quickly returned when I found it couldn't do port forwarding to multiple PCs.)
Now of course I have the free Sky router, also running very hot.
Should it melt too I still have my previous spare router which I can't use because Sky won't divulge the ADSL username/password settings. Gah.
Hmm - that means if it does melt I have to be offline until Sky send me a new router.

Come winter my living room is going to be really cosy, what with my sky router, xbox360 and skyHD box churning out heat like there's an iceage on.
Who needs central heating?
