best router for moding - Page 2

post #11 of 18
I'm eventually to lightly mod my Asus N16 - it does run warm so I'll be adding heatsinks to it to see if it helps some. It's already sitting on a laptop cooling pad attached to my PC's usb cable. I bought a slightly more powerful power adapter for the router so I can put the pad on it's usb when I move everything to a more permanent home later :-p

Adding HSF isn't going to do squat, you'd be better off putting the investment into a decent device, instead.
The WNDR3700 as stated should be fine for your requirements as it is out of the box.




You already are.
not overboard as in the water cooling kit in the link above...

also why are u discouraging me? i honestly believe the unheatsinked and unventilated routers are overheating and slowing down/ crashing.

i work at a test house running test on server type switch ports and their only go up to 85c and after that the chip starts the degrade and fail.

but i'll test the router without and then with the heatsinks/fan.

I'm not trying to berate you, as a networking professional I can see this is an obvious waste of money. Therefore, am indicating accordingly.

Feel free though, it's your equipment/funding.
Personally when there are equipment issues I prefer to have solid data (temperature measurements, for one) before randomly attempting to diagnose an issue where you may not have any real clue as to the root cause.

I'd put a fairly large sum of cash on the line that once you get away from that ancient Linksys router, you will notice your WAN experience a lot less erratic, out of the box in stock form.

i know for a fact that a normal out of the factory router will not withstand such onslaught so might as well add heatsinks to see if it makes a difference.

i wont go overboard with it.
what are you going to cool on it? They use dram to store the stuff. There's nothing to cool.

You want to waste money waste it on this puppy

Building a custom router with PC parts and a BSD or nix distro would probably be cheaper than a water cooling kit... the performance difference would be drastic too.

what price range are you looking at? When your done like to see some picks. It would look neat lol just make sure you cool the right parts. Have you tried it with a amplifier yet?
