Warm modem

My modem has been installed on a partly enclosed shelf and is quite warm. Should I be concerned and perhaps put it on top of the desk?

Hi @drawood

 

Welcome to TPG Community!

 

We'll advise you to relocate the modem on top of a desk, since putting it in a close shelf will affect the signal of the WiFi connection which may cause dropouts, slow internet speed, etc.
