Sometimes, while working on my laptop using internet via WIRELESS, & especially when I download a large file or work for a long time... the modem disconnects suddenly because my modem gets very hot .

so I have a good idea to keep it CONNECTED for a long time....

why are you using two fans, why not a large one like 24v ones instead?
I was having the same problem, I had to buy another router. Maybe it a bug with this thomson router model!

yeah..you're right...
but the back of the of the modem (ventilation area) have the same radius of the fan..so no need for 24v-fan that have a big size ....
only just for cooling ...

thanks for the comment..
