I noticed that my internet speeds on devices were getting kind of spotty, like during online games it would skip or videos had trouble loading. I rebooted my wifi router, but then I noticed that the Fingbox was unusually hot to the touch. So I unplugged it and plugged it back in, and things went back to normal. 

The Fingbox is in a ventilated area, and it wasn't next to another device, so I don't know if it was just overloaded or something? What could cause this? It seems to also affect performance on my network.

Edit: I have the v2 model

    I have just had a similar experience where the device went offline and was very hot to touch. I have unplugged it, allowed it to cool down and plugged it back in. Seems fine now but not sure if same will happen again...
