I was having problems with the internet connection dropping off. i did some research and found that the previous model to this had this problem when hot but its was sorted with this model (??) I moved it to a window sill where it has a bit of a breeze coming over it and its seems to have reduced the problem quite a bit.  It does get rather hot to the touch so I am wondering if others have found this an issue as well. Maybe they should put intructions in the box to put the thing next to a window!

It wouldn't be telecom cutting the connection like they used to do in the old days would it. they wouldn't do that would they lol

I have had no problems with heat induced dropouts but they seem to run hot with the included 12 volt 1 amp power pack which I think has no regulation. My power pack died. I found a replacment that has the same power ratings but some regulation. Both pack and router run a lot cooler now.
