just saw this thread.  I think my first router died of heat stroke.

My replacement has done the same thing where it would lock up, give me no internet, but say i was connected just fine.

So i DIY'd a 120mm fan powered off a 12v ac adaptor underneath it.  Runs MUCH cooler just based off of touching it.  Has not become unstable again.


For what its worth the manual lists this as the operating temp range.

Operating Temperature
•    30što 104š F (0što 40š C)

Good catch on the manual findings. I'm wondering if our routers have been exceeding these temps due to something in FW. I have forwarded this on to D-Link. Would be helpful if you can collect any temp values if possible. The more data we gather the more we can't provide D-Link with a reason to review this and hopefully come up with a solution. External fans are a good work around though.

Kewl,

Please collect some of the temps listed for the tests in the OP. With out and with the fan going might be good too. Mine isn't running a fan...yet. Makes me think maybe I need to invest in one.  :-\

itll be maybe 5-10dollars for the fan and another 6/7 for an AC adaptor.

youll want to match the input amps to the amount the fan can take though.  each can handle only so much.

is the adaptor im waiting on to arrive.  http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-AC-power-Adapter-supply-12v-35a-4W-MU04-8120035-A1-/220699212390?forcev4exp=true&forceRpt=true#ht_2203wt_1163



This is the fan ill be running on it.
http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/product.php?product_id=2916&product_name=R4-C2R-20AC-GP


currently im running some case fan that was too noisy that i replaced that has a max of 200ma or .2

the AC adaptor i wired is an old pelican one that went to a multi AV switcher hub.  it only outputs a max of  100ma or .1

Even with your cooling fan?

Can you do the following test? Turn off both radios and see if the router locks up. Then turn on 1 radio, leaving the other one OFF. Does it lock up. Switch radios and test.

Feel like teamviewer?

Ok, let us know what happens. Need to find a time with the wife isn't using 2.4Ghz if possible and test with out it.

Teamviewer is a remote application that allows designated persons to view your desktop, routers settings and such. Nice application for remote help and file xfers.

Just wondering if adding a radiator to the DIR-857 would help keep it cool??

Well, my idea of hooking up a car radiator didn't work.  I resorted to the next best thing!  Two crayola markers along the bottom (front / back).  This allows the DIR-857 to "breath" from the bottom as well!  So far, so good!  Seems to be running "cooler".

Any chance you have a laser temp gun to take some readings?
