Hub gets hot!

Post by but2002 » Thu Jul 09, 2009 11:35 am

I just noticed today that the hub can get hot. Possibly due to the processor working too hard, IDK I don't use the phone too often.

Perhaps you could put an update out that underclocks the hub's processor when it's not in use for a call or something. It's got good airflow, but it's still pretty warm.

Do a search. This was discussed before.

Solutions proposed:
- Dim the ooma light.
- Move the ooma box after the router.

Sorry, I just did, and I still didn't find anything on the subject.

I'll try dimming the light, but moving the box after the router is an unacceptable solution for my situation. Phone has to take highest priority, and my router doesn't have the QOS

Search seems to ignore words with three letters or less... Kind of a pain to look certain things up (Hot, Qos, IP, etc.).
Go AVS!

Just like any modem or router, the ooma hub can, indeed get hot. My solution is to make sure there is nothing on top of or around my hub (as well as my modem and router) to let it ventilate as much as possible.
