      Nice to know that things are improving for you.

      Is this with the WiFi still disabled or did you re-enable the WiFi?

      If I have to stick with the router I shall take steps to improve airflow
      Many of the routers currently on the market are of a similar design. The current crop of routers from both Belkin & Netgear appear to share the same design requirements of placing the routers on their sides.

      The Netgear DGN2000 lies flat and many overheat.

      Since there is no fan inside the routers, it seems that their processors are prone to overheating and by placing them on their edges, it means that the airflow is directed through the vents.

      I know heat-sinks would do this job, but they might add bulk, whilst a fan would add noise.

      Arghh, what an idiot I am! That was the whole reason for my last post - yet I neglected to say that I had no further disconnects since disabling wireless.

      Thanks for picking up on that Scubbie - I would probably have just had it in my head that I had included that info - unaware that people who read that post would be missing the vital detail. Wonder how may have read it as it was. I will edit it I think.

      Many thanks for being on the ball. Owe you one.


      Re the airflow: I don't think I'd get that involved - the cooling would be passive and limited to ventilation (if practical - have not had a good look yet).

      No problem, it sometimes becomes obsessive when reading what people do and do not post in forums like this.

      If you are looking to place a heat sink inside, then do take a look at the following thread as there are some good pics of the inside of the router:

      Thanks for the link. Oh, btw, have to correct myself again (just a little): Where I said passive, that of course includes heat-sinks - but I said passive in conjunction with ventilation after you had mentioned heat-sinks. (Ohh, it's painful even for me reading the mess I create).

      Cheers.

      lol - I assumed that you included the possibility of a heat sink as these are the ultimate passive way to reduce the heat.

      If you are worried about the pain of creating a mess, then perhaps you could try one of these...

      I think I can (have done) better than that - ECT. Didn't like it very much Bzzz...crackle...bzzz..human hard reboot

      Still....they tell me I'm perfectly fine now...bzzzzzt.....

      Btw, thanks for the link to pics. Looks like plenty of scope for additional ventilation - and a sink looks no problem at all.

      Don't forget to dip the sponge in the bucket of salt water.

      Ok, you asked for it .......here is the current Pun Of The Week competition. (Full list of puns can be published on request).


      RE: SALT-and-SHAKE-CRISPS


      Having googled the film Green Mile, it seems that it involves the transforming process leading to an individual becoming 'One with their Grid'.

      This process does not appear entirely neutral: It would seem that currently, the most suitable candidates (conduits, esoterically) have the following attributes:

      Ideally they should be physically short.

      They should be of known good conduct and be not firmly grounded on this earth - they should have discharged themselves of all worldly connections, and have the capacity to offer little internal resistance to the transforming and illuminating process.

      I can divulge some simple preliminary exercises which, if pactised, will amplify this galvanising process: Prior to the process, the conduit should be offered a cup of snap-crackle and pop, and encouraged to take some char. He should also meditate on the sacred syllable Ohm and the mantra Van der Graaf.

      This is the direct method outlined, whereby the true nature of polarity is relayed in its full brilliance to the conduit; alternate and circuitous attempts ultimately will lack the real continuity of the serpent-force and will not generate any measurable power.

      This process will not simply be a phase that one goes through, and its real effects not to be sniffed at!

      A solemn warning: Tis is not for the feint of heart.

      ----------------

      Whatever, they sure get my volt

      Don't want to drift too much off-topic but as an update, I'm coming up to 70 hrs since disabling wireless and not one disconnect. The prosecution rests, I think.
