I would appreciate anyone's views on whether a wired router is inherently less prone to freezing or locking up than a wireless? I have used wireless routers that last for a while then start freezing so they have to be unplugged and restarted sometimes daily, sometimes less often, sometimes more often. I have tried a few brands, they all start out OK but seem to freeze up randomly (they need to be unplugged from the power then plugged back in). I know the problem isn't my computer, because the router display shows it is frozen and none of my computers receiving wireless from the router have a connection.
Do wireless routers overheat as they run more traffic through them? My question is, is a wired router less apt to have to need to be restarted? I'm not worried about reliability issues related to interference, but rather ability to stay up without having to be restarted. Thanks!
