    Question Linksys WUSB600N USB Adapter Problems

    I have a problem with my adapter. I bought it a while ago (1-2 months ago) and its starting to overheat after 5 hours of online use (ie: gaming). I understand that this is a Fire Risk, but my download speeds and upload speeds (Even though i'm on ADSL2+) drop consistently while it overheats. It eventually comes to a point where the adapter will stop working and i have to unplug and plug it back in after 20 minutes or so.

    Is there any way that i can find a fix to this, or am i better off buying a new NIC/Adapter?

    I'd take it back under warranty, claim it's not fit for the purchase for which it was intended and you want your money back under the Consumer Guarantees Act.

    Get another adapter

    Thanks chilling, was wondering whether it was defective or not. A friend of mine has the same adapter and it never overheats, so i'll take it back sometime this week
