I just bought WAG120N.
My router's bottom is as hot as my PS3 when I play it, I don't understand why my router is that hot. Also on the surface is hot but not as hot as the router's bottom.
I disabled wireless to help reduce the temperature (hope so), but is this behavior normal?
I have Firmware V1.00.16.
I used to have a 2wire router, oh man... what an amazing router, miss it already.

It is placed on a wooden table, but right now it is:
When I woke up this morning, it was hot. I assume its temperature decrease a bit because wireless is off.
And there is no burnt smell, it is just hot, all the time. Should I turn it off when I know I'm not going to use it?

Yes, turning off the wag120n when you're not using it is a good idea. Eventhough no one is using the internet, it will still continue to send and receive data from your internet service provider.
