|The computer where the cable comes into the cable modem and router, is about 40' away, not straight. Its across walkways, hallways, etc. I would have to run a wire through the attic to make it look reasonalbe.|
I did find by accident that the bottom of the box, a samsung blu-ray dvd and netflix box was ectremely hot. So hot it was uncomfortable to touch. It was acting up on the wire and I went to hook it back up to the network through the house wire gadget to see if it failed the same, more or less. I temporarily raised it up a couple inches and have had no problems. The problem may be this box overheats. I have never felt any other electronic device (dvd, vcr, cassette) etc;, except maybe an amp, the heatsink. It was very hot. Poor design because they dont say anything, the feet are maybe 1/8 " tall, so no air passes under it, and it needs to be kept cooler than it gets. I'm sure its designed to run hot, but this almost burns. Its way too hot. We'll see. Thanks for the info.
