Comment WTB: A rugged router built to withstand heat (Score 1) 310

I've just expanded the comments on this page, ran a search for the term "heat," found a few mentions of overheating but no suggestions to prevent it. So let me ask here:

Does any Slashdotter reading this have any recommendations for a DSL modem-router (combined unit preferred) that can withstand, say, an Australian Summer while operating under load without crapping out every few minutes?

I realise that it will involve heat sinks and/or fans, and that the price will reflect this. Perfectly understandable. That said, this is for a small business/home environment, and I don't have an unbounded budget.

Compatibility with DD-WRT, OpenWRT, Tomato, etc. would be a godsend, too.

Asking because no router I've bought during the past ten years can make it through ten minutes of anything-more-than-idling without dropping sync repeatedly in an endless loop once the Summer heat sets in. (What a hideous sentence.)

Thank you.

I was under the impression that the 11th September attacks surprised (but delighted) bin Laden, and that they were masterminded by this guy:


I am aware that his confessions have been doubted as having been obtained under torture, but I'm not up-to-date on the latest developments / information.

I find articles like this one to be the most interesting content that pops up here on Slashdot, even if I can't wrap my head around it.

Can these two ideas be conciled?
