    I plugged it in for about a minute and when I took it out I noticed that it was pretty damn hot. Makes me wonder if anyone has had any overheating problems when going on long online sessions. Is this normal?

    It does get hot after a while. Definitly don't activate it when your not using it.

    Yeah, I almost burnt my effing hand on it. Then it stopped working, and I was like forget this! So I returned it and bought a $120 linksys router with speed booster and it came with like a bajillion mail in rebates and I ended up getting it cheaper than that peice of crap Nintendo one, plus I can now play all over my house, not just right beside my computer. And Nintendo dosen't even recomend their junker, they tell you to get a third party router, they said so when I called them on three different occasions trying to get that thing to work

    Mine doesn't get hot, it just gets warm, which is to be expected.
