How warm does your RT31P2 get? Mine's quite warm. I have it sitting under my WRT55AG. The 55AG doesn't get nearly as warm. I would think this would be ok (the 31P2 sitting under the 55AG) since these are both Linksys products and they are designed to be stackable. I want eh 55AG on top so the antennas are free from any nearby wires. The power cord for the 31P2 also means that if I were to place the 55AG on the bottom, one of the antennas would have to be bent to the side.

Right now it's still cold in this part of the country. I'm worried that when summer hits, the 31P2 may overheat.

Thoughts?

Good question. Most equipment owners manuals have an operating/environment temperature rating. I suggest looking that up for your Vonage device, then stick a thermometer right next to the unit and monitor the temp.

I have equipment (modem, server, router) in a closet that has an exhaust fan that kicks in when it reaches a preset temp (I set at 80degrees F) so I am aware of affects of heat (excessive heat) on equipment.

mine definitely gets warm, but i wouldn't go so far as to call it hot. i'm doing the shorted line 2 trick, so maybe that has something to do with it.

My RT31P2 runs very warm, too. It is also under a WRT55AG. The RT31P2 has the "phaser" noise on the phone ports. Most of it goes away when the Ethernet between the RT31P2 and WRT55AG is disconnected. The character of the noise changes with the power source (wall socket, UPS, AC regenerator) of the WRT55AG, not the RT31P2 as I would expect. I have not noticed a difference in the heat generated by the RT31P2 with phone port 2 connected to an on-hook phone or an off-hook phone (which reduces the "wind" noise). I have never shorted phone port 2. An RMA'd RT31P2 behaved exactly the same way. Hopefully a properly designed and built phone adapter will become available by the time the RT31P2 melts.

I must have gotten lucky, I don't have the phaser noise problem.

I just wrote Linksys to ask them if the firmware for the WRT55AGv2 will work for the WRT55AG, and possibly give me WPA capability. Hopefully they write back soon.

I have an infrared thermometer and did some measuring:

My Linksys runs at about 130 degrees (F) at the hottest point. I keep a Netgear wireless router on top of that which is about 95 degrees.

On the hottest part of my laptop, it will often climb to right around the 130 degree mark as well. The AC/DC conversion "brick" on my laptop's power cord has run well into the 160 degree range.

I had a Siemens SpeedStream router burn up on me once, my guess was heat from my DSL modem.

Of course, these temps fluctuate with room temperature. I keep my house around 75 degrees.

Last night I got a bit uncomfortable with how hot the RT was getting, so I swapped that and the 55AG. The AG is warmer than it used to be, but not as warm as the RT got, and that has cooled down considerably.

I was actually thinking about this last night, as I set my WRT54G on top of my RT31P2 for about an hour,and the RT got hot hot hot. It's usually a little warm, but nothing like it was. I moved the WRT54G underneath the RT, and it's better..but these things generate a little too much heat for my liking.

Maybe I'll head to Radio Shack and grab a couple little fans and wire them up. Cool

I just changed ISPs from DSL to cable. I bought a Linksys cable modem, and stacked my 3 linksys devices. I started to experience Wireless LAN outages and no phone services. I unstacked them, and the problems went away.

So, unstack your network equipment and get ready for better performance.
