|Thanks for the response, OtheHill. |
I have a Linksys WRT400N router. I use a wired port for the desktop upstairs and the wireless for the two computers downstairs. Tech support said the modem does run hot but if it gets too hot, it will work erratically so I could return it. I don't want to mess with that so I put the cooler under it. I turn off the upstairs desktop when I use the laptop downstairs and want to keep the USB cooler running. I have a CAT5e cable on the modem.
I hope that clarifies. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
