I do and usually closer to 60F.  :D  I'm from Canada though.  :p 

Ahh, that explains it.  I LOVE the cold, but we live in Texas.  Furry lives in Idaho.  I wonder if there's a trend here.....

The 65F was early morning so the house wasn't being heated. Normal temp for living room is around 70-75F winter time.  ::)

I purchased two Antec - Laptop Coolers from Best Buy a few years ago for my Xbox 360 and laptop.  I recently purchased a third laptop cooler as I wanted to try it with the DLink 857 and the Motorola SB6140.  Prior to using the Antec Laptop Cooler, both the 857 and SB6140 ran warm / hot (to the touch).

After placing the 857 and SB6140 on the Antec Laptop Cooler, both are now much COOLER (to the touch).  This does help with keeping both networking components from getting hot!

Here is the link to the type of laptop cooler I am using:

Hope this helps anyone looking for options on cooling electronic components (xbox 360 / routers / modems / ect.)

I did end up RMA'ing my unit.  Sadly the replacement still gets very hot.  With an idling desktop (wired) and laptop (wireless) connected and one of my cell phones (wireless).  Temperatures are still hitting an excess of 50C on the bottom close to the front of the unit.

I know but the point is, D-Link needs to make them to run within what they list for operating temperatures.

I just talked to Customer Service about this issue.  I have linked this thread in an e-mail to support and to D-Link's Q/A team.  Lets hope we get a revision 2 eventually with some decent cooling, like a copper heatpipe and or vents on the top of the unit.  Clearly, this product was poorly designed!

And you do not see the vents at the top of your unit?  ???

Let us know what they say.

I notice that if I elevate the router (I put it on a wire rack with no cooling fan) I get 5 degree cooler temps.

Yeah!  I've noticed that as well.  Too much heat is expected to escape from the bottom when hot air rises.  Clearly, someone wasn't thinking when designing the shell for this thing. 

I still have yet to hear back from D-Link about my replacement.  It is completely locking up under heavy use while sitting on a cool concret window ledge.  It's about 65F in here also so my room temperature shouldn't be an issue.

I would lower your Torrent seeds as it been know to hammer most any router. do a few at a time maybe. You might want to adjust your BT settings as well. BT is a major bandwidth hog.

Streaming video over 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz?

If your doing all this and BTg, I would try to BT wired or use 2.4Ghz if your doing it over WiFi, then stream via 5Ghz if you have clients that support 5Ghz.
