Overheating Modem?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I think my modem keep overheating as it keeps restarting. It's been really bad today. (Twice while typing this post!) It's in a hot room and doesn't get much airflow even though it's just out on the floor. Are there any easy fixes you guys can think of, or think of some other reason why it might keep restarting? I know I've seen pictures of a guy gluing staples onto the chipsets and I guess that worked. I really don't want to have a fan on it.

Thanks. smile.gif

I don't have any and wasn't looking to spend any money. That's why I was thinking of maybe trying to glue on staples. tongue.gif

Do you have it standing on end or flat? If you stand it on its end that would help make a small difference, even with passive air flow. It'd only be a small difference, but maybe that is all you need.

Yes, it is standing already.

I finally had to give up and slap a fan on mine...our home office is constantly 80+ degrees even at night, during the summer.  It's a quiet, low voltage fan and I can power it using a spliced USB fan cord.
