Hi, not a good title I know.
I have recently bought and set up a wireless network.
The router/modem seems to get very hot. It is difficult to explain heat
obviously. OK so very warm, enough to cause concern.
Hi Fruit Bat, it is a "SUMVISION" router.
Plenty of space, it is on a desk with nothing near it.
This is a new thing to me that I have only had working for a few days.
It works fine but the temperature causes me some concern.
Using a basic thermo I am getting 38 to 45C placing it on the top of the router.
Does it have a separate power supply/mains adapter (wall wart) ? If so does that get hot too ?
Things to check are whether the router or adapter is marked as suitable for 230 volts AC (UK). Most such devices these days use what is termed a "switch mode power supply" which works on any voltage and with no adjustment and also runs cool. If it used a more traditional power supplly consisting of a conventional mains transformer then it would be normal for it to get hot.
Does the unit have a power consumption figure quoted anywhere ?
