    I keep getting random lock ups where i have to reboot the router. The unit does seem to get quite warm and I wondered if this had anything to do with it. I contacted linksys and they asked me to install the latest firmware but i cant seem to find it or how to instal it. Has anyone else had this problem and how can I fix it. it is a UK one
    Thanks, vac

    Heat.. V1.2

    Unfortauntely the way the the V1.2 is coded it appears that it does get very hot very quickly.

    If you run the minimum on the box then it gives it less to think about. (acts as a wireless ap and gateway) If you start running WEP/WPA or even at 54Mbps then it tends to cook the box even quicker. The longest time I had a v1.2 without freezing was around 11 days, and that was running with the bare essentials. Since then I have upgraded to a V2 (ADSL+2) and this is a brilliant box in comparision.

    Cheers, vac
