MT2500A runs very warm

Hello Friends:

I recently purchased & configured an MT2500A Router. Running it in Router mode and pretty much idling (doing basically nothing - I haven’t even configured VPN yet), I find the unit to run very warm.

Have others experienced this with this model?

Thank you! :blush:

MT2500A is in metal case so you’ll “feel” it hotter(great heat dissipation proven of metal) in the surface than the plastic model when touch.

It’s normal and don’t worry.

Thank you for your reply. :blush:

And for others reading this, I do recommend paying a few extra dollars for the Aluminium case version (ie, prefer the MT2500A over the MT2500) for better heat dissipation and hopefully a longer life.

Even so, I’ll have a standby MT2500A unit ready just in case of failure. My MT2500A sits in between my LAN ( and my WAN (, and I don’t want to scramble with subnets if failure occurs. :blush:
