Some of you may know that I have been having problems with my wireless network, namely the connection between the computers to the outside world. The router is a Belkin Wireless G Plus. Sometimes it would last for hours others it would be crapping out (technical term) every couple of minutes.

One thing I have noticed is that it gets very hot. So tonight after making an omelette for my tea I decided to MacGyver a stand from the egg carton. It seems to be working: There has been no crashes so far this evening and the temperature is a good 15 degrees (using the touch test) cooler.

Why companies don’t provide little feet to raise it off the surface to get decent airflow under it in case it causes crashes – like mine obviously did – beats me. Having my router crash doesn’t really want me to recommend it to my mates, does it?
