    Hello all,

    I have a question about a WRT54G V8.2 router. Does the processor slow down if it gets too hot?

    The reason that I am asking is that I am having issues with the router holding onto connections through WAN. For example, from a cold start, it will run fine for about 5 min then the connection will slow down to a crawl. After letting it run for a while, I stuck a thermocouple on top of the chip and it was reading 150 Fahrenheit.

    Do you think a heat-sink would help in this case?
