Is there any way to look at the “health” or “internal temperature” of the UPC Giga Connect Box?
This fan in my box is running constantly for the last 2 or 3 months (I have the impression that on average it is running faster each month). It slows down a little sometimes but never goes to idle like it did when it was new even with minimal internet usage (e.g. middle of the night).
I have no problems with the internet connection.
However, I have been having problems with devices losing connection via Wifi (connection lost for 5-10 minutes before eventually reconnecting).
(I do not use my connect box for Wifi, I have a separate access point).
I have swapped my access point with another & it does not improve the situation.
I do have quite a lot of devices ~40-45 connected via Wifi & 10-15 connected to the access point with ethernet but normally my access point (Netgear RAX80) should be capable of handling this number of devices.
I was wondering if the fan was running because of high CPU temperature in the Gigaconnect Box which was somehow limiting/causing problems with the routing & DHCP address allocation ?
Thanks in advance for any help,
