Mine has yet to die but I like my apartment cool.  Furry's temps are lower than mind but still over the manuals optimal temps that the one user posted.  I have had a few wireless stalls though under heavy streaming.  If it starts to do this when I game on the Wii or my notebook, D-Link is going to be a call from qa very unhappy customer insisting on a replacement with a revision A2 that either comes with some sort of active cooling ir is tested under full load to run at temps that don't load to hardware failure.

Ok, I forwarded this on to D-Link. I would keep a external cooling option available and handy. I am concerned that the temps are higher than being reported by the user manual.  :-\

so i reset the router to factory defaults (never did after installing the firmware last time) seems to be happy once again.

The cooling fan does indeed make a LARGE difference to how warm it feels to the touch.  overall pretty happy with the 120mm fan + 100mA imput, might need to use my 300mA during the 100 degree summers though.

current uptime is several days without a restart now.  Temps have also gotten much cooler.

Just to interject my data here:

1. Ambient air temp where router is located is 76F.  Without cooling pad, 857 temp under a good load is 117F.  Will measure with cooling pad later but doing some non-cooling pad testing today.

Thinking ahead and the best cost colution for a business instead of recalling and RMA's each and every one of these out there.  I hope D-Link is looking at producing a little router cooler that draws power through a USB pass-through.  I am not far off calling their tech support to inquire as to what their solution is for this design flaw.

I presume that D-Link would not think of a cooler for there products. Is a good idea though.

I highly recommend that you do call in. Calling in and contacting them helps get this issue more visibility on there side and helps them understand our concerns as D-Link users of there products. I would go up Level 2 to start. Refer them to here.

I would also be patient as well, if there is a problem, the fix could be a ways out and would not be happening overnight.  ;)

Let us know how it goes.

I e-mailed support with a link to this thread.  I figured that would be much easier than running through all of what has been already said and to show that this issue doesn't just affect myself.

FYI, I have tried e-mail support and along with others, the feedback we get from email always seems to direct us to calling phone support. I have attempted this twice with email support and both times I get nothing more than the problem is too advanced and phone support is needed. I recommend calling on the phone and going to level 2 or higher.

Okay.  Will do!

Edit:  D-Link RMA is hilarious!  They aren't aware of any temperature issues with this device.  What's the point in having a forum is they are too lazy to monitor it?!

Hmm, seeing as how everyone seems to be having temp issues and I saw someone posting their laptop cooling pad solution on the front page I may as well post up my solution. I noticed my router was feeling very hot and I have had constant issues with my 827. I built this a couple months ago.

Its just a 120mm fan mounted to some cut MDF and spray painted black. I cant recall the temp difference I recorded, but it was significant. My only mod left to do is add an inline variable controller or resistor to turn the fan speed down a bit as it whirs pretty good at full power.

Excellent job on that!  That is exactly what this router needs to make up for the design flaws it has!
