Question about PC Laptops
There may be following reasons due to which your router overheating occurs:
Blocked vent holes:
Buildup of dust in the bottom vent holes is another most common reason behind this issue. Periodic cleaning of the blades of wireless router can help you get rid of this problem. You may wipe the bottom vent holes with a soft cloth to clean the holes. Do not keep the router on hot surfaces like modem. You may also be careful in ensuring that your system is not subjected to intense conditions like high temperature, excessive work load, etc.
Excessive network traffic:
The router is basically a network device. It receives the pack of data from one network and then sent it to another. You need to check the network for settings. The data received is being processed and then sent, so the signal processor may get overheated. Make sure that you do not overload the router.
Excessive over clocking:
You may speed up the network traffic. The network traffic depends on the speed of router. Make sure that the router is not over clocked beyond the recommended speed. When the router is over clocked excessively, then you may see that the router is getting overheated. You need to download the instruction manual of wireless router from the official website of manufacturer to know the recommended clock rate.
