Recently got a new router. The other day I noticed a slight burning smell and the bottom of the router, and the table it sits on is very warm. It seems like it's putting off quite a bit of heat. There's really not a lot of space between the bottom of the router and the table (maybe the thickness of a credit card) because the small rubber pieces on the four corners of the router are only like 1/32" tall, if that. You would think they would have slightly larger ones so it would allow more breathing space under the router. So, I'm going to look for some spacers to put under it on the four corners.
I'm not an engineer, but it amazes me that common sense doesn't come into play when these manufacturers design products. Of course, it could be designed on purpose this way so the devices wear out quicker. Who knows.
