Default Router over heating?

This might sound kind of crazy but I think my router is over heating. Its pretty hot to the touch. Web pages are freezing up on me, its like they pause for 5 seconds or so and then they work again. Graphics are not loading on some web pages, its kind of crazy. If its not over heating it must be near death LOL. Anyone ever have a router act up like that?

Yes, I have. Do you use a lot of bandwidth for a long amount of time (even locally)?

I'm not sure what your setup is right now either.

Are you referring to the router you got from Comcast for your business line? I know this is pretty obvious but clear anything from around it, remove any heat generating devices from under the router and if possible, set the router upright on its side.

I have 3 routers, 1 from Comcast which is a Modem/router and 2 Linksys routers. They were all stacked on each other. The center router was hot enough to cook a egg. I moved everything around, they are not stacked anymore and the Modem/router is upright. I will go check on them in a bit and see how they are doing. I never thought about massive heat build up by stacking them. Hopefully everything is fixed now. Thanks for the advice guys.
