USB Wireless adapter overheating can i fix it?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So now that summer heat has hit full force my wifi adapter is getting extremely hot and its not dropping out but it is worrying me. I was wondering if putting a ram-sink on the primary chip will help at all or will it just make it worse?
